EFFINGHAM, IL-(Effingham Radio)- The Effingham County Chamber of Commerce recognized the Effingham Event Center as the Chamber’s November Member of the Month.
The Effingham Event Center is a new name for a building that most people recognize as the Effingham Knights of Columbus Building.
The name change and purpose came about in recent years due to a desire to separate the work of the Knights of Columbus organization from the facility that is more broadly used for community gatherings.
The mission of the Event Center is to provide a quality venue for wedding receptions, meetings and banquets.
The Event Center offers two reception rooms with a combined seating for 600 people and a separate meeting room, with all with the amenities needed for successful events and meetings.
In addition the Center offers an indoor lounge and outdoor patio bar where people can enjoy live music.
The Effingham Event Center is a popular gathering place for various organizations and fundraising activities.
They hosted the Chamber’s recent Fall Draw event, the Effingham County Manufacturing Day and other Chamber meetings and educational programming.
Event Center employees are active in local churches and community fundraising activities.
