Securing a Date 

Facility rentals are subject to the availability of the space desired. To secure a rental date and reserve the space, the User must sign the OB Facility Rental Agreement and pay a nonrefundable deposit equal to 20% of the Facility Rental Fee. OB will place a temporary hold on a date for two business days without a signed agreement or deposit. A User is not guaranteed a date until the agreement and deposit are received by the OB.   


Upon execution of the usage agreement, a nonrefundable deposit of 20% of the Facility Rental and Staffing Fees is required. The remaining 80% of these fees as well as the Refundable Cleaning/Damage Deposit must be paid no later than 14 days prior to the date of the engagement. If less than 14 days remain when this agreement is signed, the full amount is due upon execution of the agreement. Any additional charges will be billed to the User within one week following the engagement and are due within 30 days of the invoice date.  

Refundable Damage/ Cleaning Deposit Fee 

Refundable Cleaning/Damage Deposit: This is a one-time fee based on the estimated number of attendees to your event. This fee shall be paid via authorize.net and will be returned to the User within two weeks following the conclusion of the engagement so long as the premises are left in the same condition in which they were at the start of the engagement as outlined in the conditions of use within the Space Usage Agreement. If any cleaning or repairs are deemed necessary beyond normal wear and tear or if the User fails to remove debris from the premises, required expenses will be deducted from the Cleaning/Damage Deposit. If such expenses exceed the amount of the Cleaning/Damage Deposit, the User will be invoiced for that amount. 


The nonrefundable deposit, final payment, and refundable damage/cleaning fee are sent to the client email listed on the rental agreement paperwork in the form of payment links via Authorize.net. 

Cancellation Policy 

Cancellation of rentals must be in writing. Should the event be cancelled, the following will apply: The original 20% deposit is nonrefundable. If the cancellation is made more than 60 days prior to the engagement, at the discretion of OB, the deposit may be applied to a future rental that occurs within 12 months of the cancellation date. If the cancellation is within 14 days of the event, 50% of the entire rental fee, including the deposit, will be forfeited. If the cancellation is within 7 days of the event, 100% of the rental fee is forfeited.  

Preferred Vendors

OB has a list of Preferred Caterers who can operate as a catering partner at HOBC. This list may be updated from time to time. All food and beverage needs for any events at HOBC should be coordinated through one of these Preferred Caterers.
