People who had planned events at the event center inside the Golden State Mall came to the facility on Friday to see what the sudden closure meant for their event.
The mall closed suddenly on Thursday when PG&E came and shut off all the power to the entire facility.
23ABC spoke to one woman who had already put down $10,000 for a Quincenera for her daughter in September.
The woman spoke to a manager for the event center who would only give her the name Claudia. She said Claudia told her she won't be getting any money back and she can still hold her event at the mall but there won't be any electricity.
Another woman said she had already put down $4,500 for a Quincenera for her daughter.
The woman said she was the single mother of four and had worked hard to put down the money for her daughter's once in a lifetime event.
