Online vote decides if Yakima is "Cougar-ville" or "Husky-ville"

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The Apple Cup is right around the corner, and Yakima Rotary wants to know whether you think Yakima should be known as "Cougar-ville" or "Husky-ville" for a week.

The UW and WSU mascots visited today to kick off the "U Rule Yakima" contest. It's an online fundraiser for Yakima Rotary.

You can make a $20 donation and vote for the Cougars or the Huskies.

The city will paint the winning school's colors down Yakima Avenue in December and hang banners and flags around town.

"I'm thrilled. It's so exciting and it's so great for Yakima to be able to do something fun like this and to not take themselves so seriously," said Rotary Member Dana Dwinell.

All the money will go toward the rotary club's projects in Yakima. Voting starts tomorrow and goes until noon on November 26th. Organizers will decorate the town on the week of December third.

You can find the site and all the voting information here.
