A couple of generic suggestions from the other coast:

Churches are often willing to rent out rooms. We used the UU church in
San Francisco for a non-denominational (Freudian slip: I first wrote
that as non-demoninational) memorial that was trying to be centrally
located in the Bay Area, had also looked at a Quaker meeting house,
decided on the UU because it better fit the tenor of the life of the

Grange halls are built for just this purpose. We use a grange hall for
many 4H meeting purposes, and have shared the space while people were
using the kitchen to set up for parties and whatnot. See also
Masonic/E. Clampus Vitus/Moose/etc lodges.

Sonoma County has a "4H Center" which is a big-ass building run by the
local 4H foundation. It's not cheap to rent, but free for 4H events
and paid for by the rentals, so it goes to a good cause. Maybe there's
something like that around for ya?
