Sponsors make water follies possible

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.—The biggest splash to hit the Tri-Cities is quickly racing in.  In two weeks thousands of people will head to the river for the 2011 Columbia Cup, and it would not be possible without sponsors.

"We have employees that have been to the races since it began," say Frank Armijo, MSA President. 

For the first time the Mission Support Alliance is sponsoring the KNDU/KNDO water follies broadcast.

"The mission support alliance is a sponsor of the water follies, because we want our employees to be involved in this community," says Armijo.

MSA workers say they are proud to now be part of the water follies sponsorship family, but they do have one requirement.

"Enjoy the boat races," says Armijo.
