Avalon Manor has been executing amazing events of all kinds for the past 17 years. General manager Katie Kucharski attributes that success to many factors—the well-maintained and updated facilities, the flexibility available to customers, the menu choices and the attentive staff.
“We have really great staff here and have many employees who have been here since the beginning,” says Kucharski. “We make people feel comfortable from the time that they book. We have a great office staff here that makes planning easy and stress-free and great servers that take good care of them. Our goal is to make the day as smooth and fun as possible.”
The venue has three full ballrooms that can be adjusted for smaller parties or combined for larger events. Two gazebos provide a setting for beautiful outdoor weddings and off-site catering is also available.
Kucharski lauds the kitchen staff and the menu choices. “We can do menus as elegant as people like or as casual as people like,” she says. “We try to give as many options as we can so that every potential client has something that appeals to them.”
With family-style options for those looking for variety to plated meals of beef medallions or chicken stuffed with prosciutto, mozzarella and basil, there are dishes for any taste.
