ShareMySpace proved to be a great resource in finding a venue that worked within our entertainment and budget needs.

City Year, a national nonprofit organization that mobilizes young adults to serve as full time tutors, mentors and role models in many of the nation’s highest need urban schools, needed a venue for its Philadelphia holiday celebration. They had a limited budget and needed to accommodate approximately 300 people inclusive of catering. They called upon ShareMySpace, a global search engine for searching and booking space, to help with their search.

“ShareMySpace proved to be a great resource in finding a venue that worked within our entertainment and budget needs. Our annual holiday celebration is an important time for City Year to appreciate our corps members and to build community as we continue our efforts to eliminate the dropout crisis in Philadelphia.” - Darryl Bundrige, Managing Director of Impact, City Year, Philadelphia.

With the assistance of ShareMySpace, City Year chose The Field House, a bar and restaurant in Center City, Philadelphia with over 12,000 square feet and three event spaces that can accommodate both small gatherings and large groups. “Field House is thrilled to be hosting City Year’s Holiday party, and look forward to working with ShareMySpace again in the future.” - Tim Adams, Field House.

“This served as a perfect example of how ShareMySpace can save people time and facilitate a smoother transaction. The search process for most spaces is far from reliable and the subsequent booking effort has many road blocks. ShareMySpace ( removes these unnecessary headaches and provides a simple and powerful way to find the right space and make a booking," said Bula Bhullar, CEO of ShareMySpace.

“ShareMySpace provides access to thousands of great spaces that often get lost in search results. Venues have no reliable way of being found even when they are the perfect fit for a person or group seeking space. Being listed on ShareMySpace greatly improves their chances of being considered.”
