Connee Hayes is the CEO of Hayes Place Event Space, an event rental space for weddings, baby showers and more. Hayes Place also supports local entrepreneurs by welcoming workshops, networking events, poetry and comedy shows, and pop-up shops. The business officially opened on June 9, and Hayes is looking forward to welcoming even more vibrant events to the area and collaborating with other entrepreneurs for community-wide events.
The venue’s lounge features surround sound, up lighting, TVs, a food prep area for catering and a fully-stocked bar. Tasteful décor, including glistening chandeliers, marbled floors and an elegant mural add to the space’s celebratory vibe.
Hayes is also a busy mother of three and works as an accountant by day and event planner by night. And, Hayes Place is a family affair: her son, who recently graduated from UW–Milwaukee, is already learning the ropes with her at the business.
