Can I get a refund from a non-refundable event if the event coordinator cancelled?

Question Details: I'm an independent consultant and I book a event with someone. I had to sign a vendor agreement. It state that, "I understand my vendor fee is 100% non-refundable". I took it by meaning if I cancel or don't show it's not refundable. However, the event coordinator messaged me stating that she was cancelling the event and we will not be getting a refund. Is that possible that she can do that?
