The Downtown Raleigh Alliance (DRA) cordially invites you to its Annual Meeting + Downtown Achievement Awards Ceremony, presented by PNC, to celebrate individuals, businesses, and organizations whose contributions are making a significant impact on the downtown renaissance.
This premier networking event is for stakeholders and community advocates interested in supporting a vibrant and more connected downtown. Connectivity is particularly important as plans take shape to adjoin Dorothea Dix Park, the city's most expansive green space, to downtown Raleigh. Throughout the evening, DRA will explore opportunities to create connected spaces and share valuable insight on the opportunities that await.
