Alcoa signs on as Signature sponsor for Badin’s Centennial Celebration in 2013

Badin is preparing to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2013, and Alcoa wants to help make the celebration grand.

The company has signed on as the celebration’s Signature sponsor and pledged $25,000 toward the milestone celebration to support two key events: the Lou Donaldson concert (April 13) and the Historic Badin Hardaway Powwow (June 21).
 
Alcoa has been in Badin since 1915 and shares a rich history with the town. 

“The generous support Badin’s volunteer centennial committee has received so far is tremendous and shows how Stanly County companies value the local community,” Badin Town Manager Jay Almond said. “Public-private partnerships like these foster the kind of union that really binds communities together and we’re proud to be a part of them.”
