12.5% Discount Off 2020-2021 Venue Rental Rates.

Because the coronavirus pandemic has created difficult and unusual times for everyone, the Gahanna Sanctuary believes offering a discount to First Line Responders who select us for their wedding or reception is called for. 

Any wedding or reception event booked by a coronavirus pandemic First Responder before midnight on July 31st of 2020 will be rewarded with a 12.5% discount off our 2020-2021 venue rental rates.

This discount is significant and symbolic since it stems from this year being the 125th birthday of the construction of historic Sanctuary Hall in 1895.

First Responders who show ID to verify their employment as healthcare professionals, police, fire or frontline workers at essential business will be rewarded for their work to engage and conquer the coronavirus pandemic.

The Sanctuary appreciates the hard and dangerous work this group of heroes has done and will continue to do.

The Sanctuary desires that everyone follow best behavior practices as recommended by the CDC and health directives issued by Ohio officials including Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Dr. Amy Acton.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to evolve daily in Ohio and our local communities, the paramount concern of the Gahanna Sanctuary has been focused on the health and safety of our customers.

We know it’s on the top of our customers minds and wanted to share with you the precautions we have taken to address it.

Considering the most recent health directives issued by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, we understand that our customers have been forced into difficult situations and confronted with hard decisions.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all who have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. While we have consistently employed best business practices to maintain a clean and sanitary environment within our venue, we have implemented additional measures that reflect the recommended standards of the State of Ohio and The Franklin County Board of Health in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Moreover, we proactively work with our customers to change their booked reservations to futures dates that work for parties.

We monitor the situation daily and understand that working through this together is the only way to bring it to a successful end. We are committed to providing customers with the information they need to make the best decision for them, family, friends, and guests.
