How Shores Event Center Came to Be
It is with great pleasure that we formally announce a change in ownership at Shores Event Center! But first, a little history….
Over six years ago, I was out riding my bike and saw a For Lease sign in the window at Shores Central Park in the Irish District. Something compelled me that day to stop in and look around the beautiful, historic building. There are several funny things about this story that I need to share.
First, I can’t even count the number of times I had driven by or biked by the building prior to this and yet had never stepped foot inside the building. Second, I wasn’t looking for a space to lease for any reason. I really just wanted to see the building.
But on that day, one of the building owners, Tom, found me wandering around the building and asked if he could help me. I explained I had seen the For Lease sign and decided to stop in and take a look. Tom asked me what type of space I was looking for. I explained that I wasn’t looking for anything specific. He also asked me how much square footage I needed. Again, I tried to explain that I didn’t know. Then he asked what kind of business I was in. I again tried to explain that I wasn’t looking for office space or anything like that. He then suggested that we take a look at the available space. I agreed.
I guess you can say the rest is history….or so the saying goes. But there were a few things that happened after that. I called my business partner, Tim, and told him I had just looked at a great space in a historic building and knew that it could be something amazing. Next thing you know, I was writing a business plan and working on design plans.
Shores Event Center Ownership Change
Since 2011, Tim and I have enjoyed sharing lots of different experiences with our customers at Shores Event Center—weddings, birthday parties, holiday parties, escape rooms, yoga & wine, and many other events.
However, we feel like now is the right time to turn over the reigns to someone else. It is with great pleasure that we announce Jason Alberty as the new owner of Shores Event Center. This is effective September 1, 2017.
We would like to thank all of our friends, family, employees, and customers for the support they have given us over the last 6 years and wish Jason great success in his coming years with both Shores Event Center and The Foundry Performance Laboratory.
