Celebrating 75 years of supporting the community

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.
