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. 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. Join DSI as we present the 2017 Awards of Excellence, hear from the Mayor in his annual State of Downtown address, and throw in a few bells and whistles for our 25th bday! Including Freekbassas, our house band for the night and the Divas in the Air aerial performances. Do we know how to mark a milestone or what?
