The River District Association, a business development organization in West Columbia, received a $500 donation from the non-profit Carolina Together. The funds came from the Gervais Street Bridge Dinner that was held in May.

“The River District is planning some exciting business development events and the donation will be used to fund the things we are planning,” Cohen said. “We’re really grateful for the money and we will use it to promote The River District business community.”

Amaker said Carolina Together is pleased to be able to support The River District. “It’s a very worthwhile organization,” she said.
