Tourism Awards Presented

The Kruegers of Orchard Inn B&B accept the award for Best Lodging

At our annual lunch today, the Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau presented their encore! awards to five businesses and individuals.  Awards were presented to Santiago’s for Best Restaurant, Orchard Inn Bed and Breakfast for Best Lodging, Tasting Room Yakima for Best Wine Tasting Room experience. Recognizing their contributions to the tourism industry, the Prosser Chamber of Commerce was presented Tourism Business of the Year and Shirley Puryear of Bonair Winery was awarded Tourism Person of the Year.

A highlight of the program was a heartfelt presentation by Seattle actress, comedian and speaker Tracey Conway, who spoke on issues related to heart health and life priorities. More than 240 industry and community leaders attended the event at the Yakima Convention Center.

The Yakima Valley Visitors and Convention Bureau is the designated tourism marketing organization for Yakima County and the Yakima Valley.
