Deborah Tompkins Johnson of Dominion Energy captures why being a First Night Alexandria corporate sponsor is a “must do” for her company.

First Night Alexandria brings together individuals and families who are our customers, other businesses, the military and the City. This is a great collaboration for Dominion Energy.Deborah Tompkins Johnson of Dominion Energy

Collaboration – that is the key to any great partnership. We value your participation and want to ensure First Night Alexandria is the right investment for your company.

Our sponsorships offer community visibility via print, web and social media. Premium level sponsors are invited to participate in our kick-off and recognition events. Your employees can get involved too, as part of our volunteer program.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of this year’s celebration. Your contribution will help us meet our goal of $75,000 in business support which is needed to ensure quality programming for families and singles in a safe setting. The balance of the budget comes from grants from the City of Alexandria and the sale of admission badges. The support from your company, other businesses and enthusiastic individuals helps to sustain the First Night Alexandria experience year after year for our community and its global visitors.
