MILL SPRING, N.C. -- Omar Botero, Chairman and C.E.O. of Alianza Trinity Development Group, LLC., ("Alianza"), owners of Bright's Creek Golf and Sporting Club, a pristine 5,000 acre private club community and resort destination located in Mill Spring, North Carolina, announced today the execution of a strategic partnership with Lantern Business Credit, LLC, an affiliate of Lantern Capital Partners. The milestone partnership provides a foundation for the remarkable resort-style community to launch into the next exciting phase of Bright's Creek development.

After completing the initial period of improvements to the existing infrastructure and amenities, which included restoring the Tom Fazio golf course to its original grandeur, this collaboration clears the path for Alianza's vision to deliver the next phase of luxury community development. In accordance with the previous plans, Bright's Creek will now begin construction on exciting family amenities including: the new swim, fitness and tennis centers, the outdoor activity areas for kids and young adults, as well as elevating the equestrian facilities and experience with more than 14 miles of scenic riding trails.

"We are thrilled about this strategic alliance and all look forward to working alongside the Lantern team bringing Bright's Creek to the next level," said Omar Botero, Manager and C.E.O. of Alianza. "The community and Bright's Creek members can expect major announcements in the weeks and months to come."
