Sponsorship Opportunities


Are you a Think Local Supporter?


The 3rd Annual Think Local Showcase is just less than six weeks away!  If you attended the showcase in 2017 or 2018, you will likely remember enjoying a delicious, gourmet meal of local food, served by 6-10 of the best local culinary businesses, and networking with 100 of the top local business and political leaders. This year’s event will provide all of that – plus tours of the local winery, Adamo Estates, with a tasting of their local wine!


Building upon the success of the past two years’ events, we would like to offer a few local businesses the opportunity to be Think Local Supporters, and one Think Local Champion, sponsoring the event this year. Sponsors will be able to showcase their business and showcase their commitment to thinking local.

The Dufferin Board of Trade hosts an annual Golf Tournament in August.  As part of the Golf Tournament, we have a silent auction and putting contest to raise money for a local charitable organization.  Last year we raised over $3,000 for the Bethell Hospice Foundation.

We request that a representative from the chosen charity participate on our Golf Committee leading up to the event.  Please indicate in your expression of interest your willingness/ability to do so.

The Dufferin Board of Trade Golf Committee reserves the right to select any charitable organization of their choosing, or any combination there of, at the discretion of the committee.

In keeping with our philosophy of “Thinking Local” across Dufferin County, the same charity will not be eligible to be the beneficiary two years in a row.  Only organizations who provide services within Dufferin County, or to residents of Dufferin, will be considered.
