Eric Hamilton, a proud lifelong resident of Downers Grove, is thrilled to announce his sponsorship of the local concert, underscoring his deep commitment to giving back to the community. “Our goal is to become the premier retail mortgage lender nationwide, and we believe that our success is not just about growing our business, but about the positive impact we can make on our Guaranteed Rate family, our valued customers, and the communities we are part of,” stated Eric Hamilton. This initiative is a testament to Eric’s dedication to not only excel in the mortgage lending industry but to also ensure that such success translates into meaningful contributions to the community, reinforcing the principle that with growth comes the responsibility to do good.

The Summer Concert Series welcomes over 20,000 visitors each summer and is a great opportunity for local businesses to connect with residents of the Downers Grove community. In addition to the Eric Hamilton Team at Guaranteed Rate, the festival is sponsored by Jackson Family Dentistry, the Kim Moustis Group of Keller Williams Experience, Community Bank of Downers Grove, and SportClips Haircuts.

“The success of the series is enhanced through partnerships with local businesses and organizations, creating a mutually beneficial relationship. Event sponsors have the opportunity to engage directly with visitors, forge connections, and disseminate their information in an enjoyable setting,” said Erin Collins, Marketing & Sponsorship Specialist for the Downers Grove Park District.
