HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Dominion Resources gifted $1.2 million to the 2019 Commemoration to support events and projects marking the 400th anniversary of key events in the founding of America.
Dominion made the donation to build awareness of Virginia’s unique role in the creation of the U.S. As a founding partner of the 2019 Commemoration, Dominion will help underwrite renovation of the Fort Monroe Visitor and Education Center in Hampton.
“We are pleased to have Dominion join us as a Founding Partner,” said Kathy Spangler, Executive Director of the 2019 Commemoration. “Through sponsored events and legacy projects, Dominion will assist us in commemorating the events of 1619 while using a contemporary lens to engage Americans in discussions about the present and the future.”
