Entrance a memorial service at the FoothillsWe understand that it’s hard to face saying goodbye to a loved one, let alone sort through the details associated with planning a memorial service. The Foothills Event Center is here to help as you plan for a memorial service in Grass Valley. We’ve assisted Nevada County residents with funeral and memorial service preparations for 50 guests up to 400.
Our team can get to work promptly, even on the same day if necessary. “On such short notice, everyone was so helpful and kind. It made a difficult time for our family a little easier. Thank you so much!” shares a woman who held her father’s memorial service at the Foothills.
Your loved one was one-of-a-kind. The celebration of their life should be too. Let our modern venue set the stage for the memorial service, and our experienced Event Coordinators will help with every aspect of planning. They’ll work with you to make sure that the memorial service you plan is a reflection of your loved one and the legacy they leave behind.
We respectfully help Nevada County residents with their funeral plans. Serving Grass Valley, Nevada City, Alta Sierra, Penn Valley, and surrounding areas, we specialize in assisting families in planning a memorial service that honors their loved one with a respectful service. Many families have appreciated the amenities we offer:
