Sponsorship is a great way to showcase your business, but where does your money go? Funds raised by the Lincolnton Food, Wine & Brew Fest support the ongoing efforts of the Downtown Development Association of Lincolnton, Inc. (DDA). The DDA is a volunteer-driven, self-sustaining 501 c3 organization whose focus is to bring attention and business to Historic Downtown Lincolnton. Restoring the downtown district through revitalization projects, hands-on support of local businesses and procurement of new potential businesses through venture capital grants are just a few of the endeavors of the DDA. Sponsorship makes the event an immediate success, while boosting vitality and enabling restoration in the town – resulting in a positive, long-term impact on the larger surrounding region. Your participation goes a long way!
