The Wells Fargo Championship offers an opportunity for us to showcase this region as a top destination for business and investment.” The chamber already has commitments of $125,000 from New Hanover County and City of Wilmington combined over the next two years, along with $100,000 from the chamber’s Cape Fear Future Foundation.
