Thank you very much for partnering with us!
–Microsoft Corporation

The energy and excitement that the event staff exude are infectious, and I knew from the start we would have an amazing relationship with the Seattle Mariners. It is an incredible honor to induct members into our Hall of Fame with the beautiful backdrop of Safeco Field. The Terrace Club allows enough room for 250 guests, the service is courteous and professional, and attendees raved about the meal. The events staff have made our humble Luncheon into an event that raises the hair on your arms and brings tears to the eyes of many men in our profession.

For the past five years, we have held our annual breakfast meeting for 150 attendees at Safeco Field's Wells Fargo First Base Terrace Club.

The events and catering staff always take the extra step to ensure a smooth and successful event.

–Northwest Grocers

We've held one of our biggest annual events at Safeco for the past five years. While the location is a favorite for many of our customers, the staff is what I really value. Before, during and after each event, they have been easy to work with and very responsive to our needs in the planning and execution of our show. When problems crop up (as they always do), they are fast to respond and they work hard to ensure the same problem isn't repeated at future events. I would highly recommend Safeco Field and their staff to anyone planning an important event.

Safeco Field has become as much a part of the Children's Golf Classic as tees and greens! Since 2003, it has been my pleasure to work with the Seattle Mariners Events team on our kick-off party. The staffs' creativity and flexibility combined with the venue's many space options has allowed us to grow in numbers and complexity over the years. The opportunity to move from the Terrace Level to the Main Concourse and now to the field offers our guests a new party without the hassles of new location each year. And, I have the benefit of working with a staff familiar with my event. I look forward to continuing this winning partnership as we begin planning for the 11th Annual Children's Golf Classic.
