DASH 40th Anniversary Sponsorship Opportunities

 

Celebrate 40 Years of DASH!

 

DASH is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2024. This week-long celebration will be highlighted by an awards banquet on Saturday, March 9th for DASH employees, DASH VIPs from past and present, and leaders from the local, regional and state levels. Other events will include a transit collectibles exhibit and several pop-up customer appreciation events around the City.

Since the very first DASH bus hit the historic streets of Alexandria on March 11, 1984, we’ve partnered with leaders and luminaries in our industry, our region and our community to build a bright future for public bus transit in Northern Virginia. With the support of our stakeholders and business partners such as you, we’ve been able to deliver and set the benchmark for excellent, high-quality public transit services for our community. Your sponsorship and support of DASH’s 40th anniversary celebrations is a prime opportunity to highlight your partnership with DASH, and gain visibility of your services and contributions to a world class transit service that is recognized both regionally and nationally.

Many of the available sponsorship tiers include event tickets to our 40th anniversary banquet. We hope that you’ll help support us and join us in celebration of our milestones and accomplishments at the George Washington Masonic National Memorial on Saturday, March 9th, 2024.
