Celebration of Life/ Memorial Venue

A Celebration of Life is an important, if emotionally challenging, event to put together. Following the loss of a loved one, it's important to allow people to say goodbye and also remember the important moments in their life with the other people who loved them or were touched by them. Celebrations of Life can range from intimate family affairs to large affairs of state to anything in between.

Our Approach to Memorials/ Celebrations of Life

We understand that losing a loved one can be a time filled with emotions and a long list of things that suddenly need to be done. The event itself can be complex if family and friends are coming from out of town and it's unclear what dates will work for everyone, how many people will want to come, and what the right format should be. We're here to help! We can offer a facility, catering, and the support (if needed) of a coordinator who can help you put the details together and get the answers that you need to ensure that people coming to pay their respects will have the experience that you want to provide.

Some common answers to questions:

  • We have capacity for > 500 people in our Sanctuary with similar space outside and a smaller Parler space as well.
  • We're located in downtown Long Beach just off the 710. We're ~30 minutes from 3 major airports: LAX, SNA, and LGB (15 minutes)
  • We are able to create a menu with placeholders for a starting guest count estimate and adjust as RSVPs come in
  • We have parking for 50+ cars next to the facility and have a 3000 car city structure within a 5 minute walk
  • We can create custom menus to reflect the type of event your loved one would have wanted for all the friends and family that gather
