Pete Rayner, Co-Owner

In 1996, Pete Rayner, made an important discovery. Local companies in need of meeting space were not having their needs met by existing facilities in a timely and professional manner.  As an attorney spending a fair share of time in continuing education meetings and conferences, he witnessed first-hand that most conference and meeting sites available in Spokane were entirely without charm--even a window.  In 1997, Beacon Hill Events was created and built on 200 wooded acres in the Spokane foothills. 

Ellie Aaro, Co-Owner

Pete's daughter, Ellie, developed her passion for the event industry with the production of her sisters wedding at Beacon Hill.  After graduating from the University of Washington in 2001, she excitedly returned to Beacon Hill as Event Director. In the first year of her return, she managed over 100 special events.  Ellie soon realized what an important role catering plays in its success.

Beacon Hill Catering and Events was born.

In 2003, Ellie and Pete became business partners adding food to Beacon Hill’s repertoire of services.  They created a full-service catering company: Grace Catering.  Thus began Ellie’s journey to become Executive Chef; starting with her tutelage under a 40-year catering veteran she learned the tricks of the trade.  Through her continued work and experience she developed her own culinary voice. In 2004, she traveled to Paris to train at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school.  Through travel, research and education, she continually looks for original ideas to provide inspiration for creative and distinctive events.
