The 25th anniversary of the founding of Downtown Springfield Inc. by business and city leaders is nearly here! Join us (fittingly) on January 25, 2018 for DSI’s Annual Dinner, an evening that will entertain and dazzle, honoring our growing neighborhood and the people who make it special.
This is the biggest fundraiser that DSI holds every year to fund our work. DSI is a 501(c)6 business association that is funded primarily by business memberships, fundraiser and event sponsorships. As a Main Street organization, we undertake a plethora of activities to increase the economic and cultural vitality of downtown Springfield. Our 2017 work led by paid staff, a volunteer board of directors and hundreds of community volunteers, included working on business attraction and small business issues, advocating for more residential units, and promoting this neighborhood as a destination for dining, shopping and socializing. We are also well-known for our 2017 events including the Art Alley Pop-Up, Old Capitol Farmers Market, Amaranth Apple Festival, Friends of the Market Street Dinner, First Fridays and other business promotions and Old Capitol Holiday Walks that bring thousands to the downtown district every year.
Our generous sponsors of the 25th anniversary Annual Dinner are pulling out all of the stops to celebrate the quarter-century mark in style and set the stage for the coming days of vision, vitality, volume and decreasing vacancies.
Trust us when we say, people will be talking about this event in the weeks following — and you won’t want to miss it!
