To Tri-Valley With Love
Mobile “Promise Pass” Incentivizes Spending at Nearly 100 Local Businesses
The pandemic may be waning, but local businesses are still teetering. To address this challenge, the East Bay cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, San Ramon and the Town of Danville, have partnered with Visit Tri-Valley (VTV) to launch an unprecedented regional campaign to drive spending in local businesses. Dubbed “To Tri-Valley with Love,” the campaign asks residents and visitors alike to spend at least $25 per week at local businesses instead of online and in big-box stores.

Sweetening the deal, the cities have created a mobile Promise Pass that offers a slew of discounts at nearly 100 businesses, with new offers added regularly. The Promise Pass was created to inspire spending within the Tri-Valley community to help buoy local businesses to see them through the final stages of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Restaurant Revitalization Fund
Presented by the SBA
Last week, the Tri Valley Chamber of Commerce Alliance hosted the Small Business Administration for a presentation about the Restaurant Revitalization Fund. View the presentation slides here.

This fund provides emergency assistance for eligible restaurants, bars, and other qualifying businesses impacted by COVID-19, to keep their doors open. Recipients are not required to repay the funding as long as funds are used for eligible uses no later than March 11, 2023. Learn more about this funding tool, offered by the US Small Business Administration. Find out if you're eligible here.
Retirement is the light at the end of a long and arduous road. You have worked hard over your lifetime and now it is almost time to rest and reap the benefits of your labor. However, reaching retirement doesn’t matter if you can’t live comfortably for the duration of your golden years. Inflation, market shocks, emergency spending, and long-term care needs can derail your plans. Are you as prepared as you could be?
During this workshop, a qualified instructor with years of industry experience will guide you through the retirement preparation process, alerting you to common pitfalls and giving you strategies that will help you live well throughout your retirement.
Tuesdays, May 18 & 25 6:30-7:30 PM
Thursdays, May 20 & 27 12:00-1:00 PM
