  • Kay,
    Our meeting yesterday went extremely well.  The facility is beautiful and the campus as well.  What made it such a good day was the support we received from your team- Claire and Charlotte.

    I know I asked Claire for help 100 times and she always had a smile and can do attitude.  Working with her is a pleasure.  Charlotte took over in the afternoon and helped us get extra chairs, answered questions with a glad to help reponse.  Please pass along my recognition and thanks.
    I look forward to being back with you all for our November 29th session.
    Mary Ann Yauger, Orion Advisory

  • Dear Kay,
    Thank you for all your help last week during Senator Clinton's visit to the Younts Center.  Sorry that you had to pull an all-nighter, but your efforts paid off and we had a successful visit.  Again, thank you for all your hard work!
    Scott, United States Secret Service

  • Younts Conference Center is very nice. I had a larger wedding so it worked for us. The nice thing is you get the whole building so you don't have to worry about a bunch of other people wandering around in the same building. Furman is also a very pretty campus, so there was alot of nice places around the reception site to take pictures. They packed us a to go bag so we got to eat all the food we wanteded to since guests like to talk your ear off. I would recommend them to my friends. The other nice thing is since it is on Furman campus Furman Catering does all the food, so it saves you searching for a caterer.
    Kate, Bride

  • My wedding was amazing. Furman made sure I didn't have to worry about a thing on my special day. They helped me find a wedding coordinator, Amanda Cox, who was amazing! From the food to the reception layout they made sure everything was just how my husband and I wanted it. Our wedding day was a dream come true with no worries, we just enjoyed the day. I would HIGHLY recommend Furman as an event venue for your wedding reception.
    Sarah, Bride

  • I cannot begin to tell you how many of our members have called to express how much they enjoyed the evening at the Younts Center.  We appreciate you allowing us to utilize the Younts Center and sincerely hope that many of our members will take advantage of the facility for future personal and business needs.
    Anne Jones, Bank of Travelers Rest

  • Excellent accomodations.  Excellent ambiance.  Very quiet with no disturbances.  Lunch outside was super! (Thanks for the great weather!)  As last year it was a great place for our annual offsite and we hope to use it again in the future.

  • Dear Kay, Claire, Susan, and Scott,

  • Dear Kay,
    We just wanted to thank you for being so dear and such a joy to work with in planning our wedding!
    The Younts Conference Center was the perfect setting!  It was great being able to use both Heller Terrace as well as Shaw Hall.
    It was a bit tricky trying to plan an out of town wedding and I know I wasn't a "typical" bride.  We just appreciate you being so accomodating, easy going, organized, ect...  You are very talented and helped so much in making sure everything was just right!
    We loved our wedding!
    Thank you to you and your staff as well as catering for all that you did.
    Cindy and Steve Hetey, Bride and Groom

  • Dear Kay,
    Thank you so much for your help with our wedding.  I really appreciate you allowing us to decorate the day before.  It made it so much easier on my friends who were decorating for us.  I also appreciate your willingness to help us with everything else we asked for.  You were a pleasure to work with and made the process so much easier- not to mention fun!  We'd be happy to share our wonderful experience with anyone. 
    Thanks again Kay! Your enthusiasm for our wedding will always be remembered.
    Sandra and Matthew Miller, Bride and Groom

    I wanted to let you know what a success our June Board of Governors meeting was.  I continue to hear wonderful things about the meeting agenda and the conference center.  You and others were terrific hosts!  I have passed your name and menues on to others on our staff. 
    Thank you again,

  • This was one of the easiest event I've ever done thanks to Kay and Claire at Younts.  Kay was very patient and helpful before the event, and Claire took care of every single detail on the night of the event.
    Thank you!!

    Kirbie Crowe, Upstate Forever

  • Dear Kay,
    I cannot tell you how relaxed I was on my wedding day knowing you were taking care of our reception -- and I was certainly right to trust you!  You, and Diane, did an absolutely beautiful job!  Everything was just perfect!  I know all our guest loved the new Younts Center!  I really could not have asked for a nicer, easier, or more competent person to be in charge!  I certainly recommend you, Diane, and the Younts Center to everyone!  Thank you for making our reception so wonderful! 
    With love,
    Liza Robertson Barron, Bride

  • Dear Kay and Meredith,
    We just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you both for all your hard work leading up to our Leadership Meeting last week.  We really appreciated your good humor and kindness, which made the day much easier for all of us.  Your responsiveness and gracious hospitality made working with you both a true pleasure, and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

    Thank you for ensuring a smooth and lovely event for Miracle Hill last week.  The facility is beautiful and everyone enjoyed it.  Many are eager to return.  Your helpfulness is greatly appreciated.  We'd do it again-except no candles next time!
    Janet Yusi, Miracle Hill Ministries

  • Kay and staff,
    Thank you so much for all of your help at our reception on April 18th.  Everything was set up perfectly and ran smoothly!  We had many compliments about our reception venue and atmosphere and everyone, including us, had a fantastic time at the Younts Center.  Tad and I also thoroughly enjoyed our to-go cooler.  We had a feast at the airport on the way to our honeymoon!  Thank you again to everyone who played a part in making our reception a fun and memorable experience.
    Catherine Nelson McLeod, Bride
