Thrilling athletic competitions, exciting outdoor concerts, and charming holiday events make the vibrant community of Bermuda Run a delightful destination for everyone. To encourage continued growth, the Bermuda Run Tourism Development Authority (TDA) is seeking grant proposals from both non-profit and for-profit organizations aiming to organize special projects and events that draw visitors to the Town of Bermuda Run area and subsequently increase the economic impact on the community.
Previous grants include the artificial turf project at Truist Sports Park, marketing grants to WinMock to promote their wedding business, marketing grants to Hampton Inn Bermuda Run, and tournament grants to entice event organizers to bring their events to Truist Sports Park and RISE Indoor Sports.
“The Bermuda Run TDA, in addition to grant funding, utilizes its resources to market the Bermuda Run community and its assets as a great destination for visitors. We are fortunate to have so many great amenities in such a small town (golf courses, outdoor sports complex, indoor sports complex, wedding/special event venue, and hospital) that bring in visitors,” said Scott Wollaston, CEO of NC Triad Fusion, Inc (which owns and operates Truist Sports Park) and chair of the Bermuda Run TDA board. “Our goal is to utilize the resources that we receive from the occupancy tax from the Hampton Inn Bermuda Run to keep the flywheel going….to make sure we keep visitors coming to Bermuda Run, spending money in our community, and ultimately staying in our hotel (and potentially future hotels).”
The tourism board consists of local leaders in the Bermuda Run community that represent some of the leading tourism drivers, including representatives from Davie County Tourism, Town of Bermuda Run, Truist Sports Park, RISE Indoor Sports, Bermuda Run Country Club, Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Davie Medical Center, and the Hampton Inn Bermuda Run. Together, they support the growth and promotion of the Town’s tourist attractions, assets, and potential future tourism sites.
The deadline to apply for a 2023-2024 grant cycle grant is September 30, 2023. Any organization wishing to request funding support from Bermuda Run Tourism must complete the Bermuda Run Tourism Development Authority 2023-24 Request for Tourism Project Funding form found on the Town of Bermuda Run website. Applications are available to complete and submit online. These forms must be submitted to Bermuda Run Tourism no later than 5 p.m. on September 30. Applications received after the grant cycle is closed may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis or will be considered in the next grant cycle in the following fiscal year.
