From the President...

We realize that your company receives many requests for donations and sponsorship (both in-kind & money) on a daily, weekly & monthly basis from fundraising charities. We also realize that you have a limited budget and cannot give to all that you may like to.

We are one of those charities that depend on fundraising to meet our mission. For your consideration we have enclosed an event sponsorship packet. This packet is for the calendar year 2017. At your convenience we will invoice you annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly for your pledged amount for this year.

Please look at our event sponsorship packet and how it can benefit both of us. The first two pages in the packet will explain who we are, what we do and how it helps our local economy. The remainder shows the major events we sponsor and how you can be involved to support our community. Destination Downtown South Boston is a public charity and is exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our tax ID is #86-1166760.

The association between DDSB and your company will generate a unique marketing opportunity to create awareness and build greater visibility for your products and services. Additionally, your exposure as a sponsor will build community goodwill and enhance your community image.

Sponsoring these fun and memorable events gives you access to the festive crowds that our events bring. Our exposure reaches not only existing customer bases but spans to include regional communities and special interest groups. The sponsorship that your company gives helps us promote a positive image for South Boston/Halifax County.

We thank you in advance for your time and consideration of our event sponsorship packet. You can simply fill in the enclosed event sponsorship pledge form and return it to DDSB, 432 Main Street, South Boston, VA 24592 or email to .

Once again, on behalf of Destination Downtown South Boston, Inc., we thank you for supporting our local economy! If you need more information or would like us to make a presentation in person, we would be more than happy to do so. Just contact us.
