Sponsor a Child for River Days

Since 1986, Renton River Days has brought fun to the families in our community at no or very low cost to them, thanks to the generosity of local businesses, organizations and individuals. In order to sustain the tradition of offering virtually all its activities at low cost or free to the public, River Days invites everyone in our community to Sponsor a Child for River Days by contributing $5. This minimal amount per child helps offset the costs of  inflatable games, stage entertainment, balloon artists, caricaturists, educational and interactive stations, and many other features brought in just for our kids.  Thank you in advance for considering a gift for one or more children.  Checks can be made payable to Renton River Days and sent to Renton River Days, 1055 South Grady Way, Renton, WA, 98057. For more information, call 425.430.6528.
