To Do in the River District

River District Dollars Patron Program

Dear Danville businesses who love to appreciate their employees!

This is a great opportunity to purchase River District Dollars for employee appreciation this holiday season.

If you register as a "Patron" you can purchase gift cards without the e-delivery fee. This is great for employees AND for River District businesses! (RDA does not receive any fund from these sales, it's all for the businesses!)
