Tri-City Water Follies Announces Lamb Weston as Title Sponsor

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - The Tri-City Water Follies officials announced this morning who the new title sponsor will be.

"After two years of not having a title sponsor, we're very pleased to announce that Lamb Weston, part of the ConAgra foods family has generously decided to be our title sponsor," said Kathy Balcom, President of the Tri-City Water Follies Association.

Balcom says this title sponsor is key to making the boat races a reality this year ... and future years.

Sponsorship by Lamb Weston is just one of several local contributors.

"Everybody in this community has done a great job in stepping up and Kathy has done a great job at rallying a lot of community support, and we just thought that...given our position as a leading employer in the area that we ought to get on board as well," said David Richardson, Vice President of Finance with ConAgra Foods.

This will be the largest financial contribution to the Water Follies, bringing them "Over the top," said Balcom. 

However, they are still searching for more sponsorship.   Some events are still under debate, however the air show and vintage boats are a definite go.

A full schedule of the events in the last week in July should be released within a month.
