Our Story


Our family has seen virtually everything an event, venue, city, client or meeting planner can throw at you—and we are here to help.

Kathy Sweet, her husband Dave, and son Johnny, share in managing and operating the business. A true family affair, their dream of creating a unique and elegant boutique event space in their own backyard became a reality in 2016, when because formally opened its doors to the public.

Armed with almost three decades of event production experience, the Sweets yearned to provide the community an elegant and accessible venue that fit the individual needs of events of all types, sizes and personalities. A place where people could simply come together.

Propelled by a desire to give back to the community, they initiated a plan of action that ensures that with every event hosted at because, 10% of the full amount spent goes directly to the 'cause' of one's choice. This approach guarantees that because is always investing back in the community that it holds so close to heart.

From the Sweet Family to yours, we look forward to hosting your next event!


We financially support local-to-Phoenix charities with every event we host.

It’s simple, with every event hosted at because, 10% of the full amount spent goes directly to one of the seven causes we partner with. You choose who you would like to support!

Also, if you are a certified 501(c)(3) organization and you are hosting an event at because, we will donate 10% of your total spend back to your organization.
