Security DepositA security deposit of $300 is required within one week after the event date has been selected. This deposit is to reserve and confirm the date for the event. If the organization does not pay the deposit in a timely fashion, the date will be released. If the organization cancels the event within selected date of the event, the deposit will not be refunded. This is non-negotiable. This deposit will then be used toward other fees associated with holding an event at JRG.

Ticketing – To staff the event appropriately and provide proper customer service, the organization must provide an accurate attendance count. The Organization agrees to pre-sell tickets to the event. All ticket sales will go though JRG ticketing service located on our website, Jergels.com. A convenience fee will be applied to each ticket purchased. This is non-negotiable. Ticket purchase does not guarantee a seat, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

***Donation Pricing –The price of the donation being collected for the event is up to each organization hosting the function. The pricing is a *Suggested Donation* since JRG is not charging the organization a rental fee. JRG customers are welcome in the building during the event and it is up to their own discretion upon making a contribution. The suggested donation will be displayed on signage and the JRG staff member collecting the money will mention it to every person entering the venue.

AV/ Lighting – Organization agrees to pay any and all engineering fees for sound, lighting, audio, and visual. Price is $300 per staff member.

2nd Floor Staffing Fee – Organization agrees to pay a $10/per hour per person Staffing Fee to reserve JRG services for the confirmed date for use of the 2nd Floor. This fee will be waived if the Organization exceeds the guest count of 150 people paid at the door or via online ticket sales.

If JRG has to outsource additional tables or chairs beyond what is in-house, additional charges will be applied. If you would like JRG to provide linens for your event, there will be additional fees.
