Tonya and York Management really understand what it takes to create a unique and engaging experience with every event they produce.  What differentiates York Management is how they know what we need before we even say it. Their level of detail and professionalism is unmatched and their ability to bring the “wow” factor at every event is an attribute of a gifted events organization. Tonya and her team also make the whole event process fun and collaborative. You are truly in excellent hands when York Management supports your event!
Ginna Baik, CDW Healthcare
Bruce and I haven’t missed one of York Management’s spectacular Unbridled Eve Galas. I love this event. It pulses with the energy and excitement that’s Derby.  York Management brilliantly handles the delicate balance of seeing to the myriad of details involved in creating a weekend – of food, wine, music and charity while still making guests feel welcome on a personal basis. Can’t wait for the next one.

Tonya’s warmth fills up the whole room every time I have had the honour to be invited to one of her fabulous events. To event makers and aspiring event makers out there, you can learn a thing or two from this beautiful lady that I’m proud to call my friend.
Ndaba Mandela, Africa Rising Foundation
Memories are cherished and last a lifetime. I have been a hospitality professional for over 20 years and the most memorable events I have ever attended were crafted by York Management. It doesn’t matter if the event is large or small, Tonya pays attention to every detail ensuring every guest feels special and leaves with lasting memories. We have seen firsthand many events York has planned over the years at the Galt House and their altruistic style of planning and execution is unrivaled. 
Lance George, Director of Sales and Marketing The Galt House Hotel
If you are planning an event, there is no one better than York Management. Every logistical detail is planned out to perfection. The Thrive Center has been fortunate to partner with York Management on our quarterly events with corporate attendees from across the nation. We focus on our guests knowing Tonya and her team will handle the event details.

York Management is a top-notch professional group! I participated in their successful events of the Idea Festival in Louisville and saw their work in action. York Management was engaged to take over the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame annual induction ceremony and did a fantastic job. They helped us take this event to the next level! 
Bobby Clark , Co-Founder - Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame
What I appreciate most about the team at York Management is they focus intently on the details that give the event a real touch of class.  Especially when dealing with guests from out of town, it’s those little details that make the difference.

Tonya York and her York Management team led the planning for a special fundraiser for the Denny Crum Scholarship Fund at U of L in 2017. Their leadership made sure our planning committee knew what to focus on and kept the whole process organized and manageable. It was our largest fundraiser to date and their leadership and expertise was invaluable.
Coach Denny Crum and Susan Sweeney Crum
It’s amazing what Tonya and her group are able to put together. Tonya’s attention to detail and planning is first class. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to organize so many high-level people for such an amazing experience and to make it all work so gracefully. You never see the behind the scenes challenges the York Management team faces because they keep the whole package rolling so effortlessly.
Luke Hancock, Financial Advisor / 2013 NCAA Basketball Championship MVP
I am lucky enough to attend and actively participate in a lot of different events every year… York Management is hands down, the absolute best company that I get to work with!! When I know they’re behind something – I clear my calendar and make it happen! Tonya and her team do everything at the highest level, and always maintain their beautiful & warm southern charm to top it all off! Absolute best!
