Earlier this week the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce presented the Fall 2010 Y.E.S. Awards (Yakima Extra Special) at a membership luncheon.
The Yakima Convention Center’s new Outdoor Plaza received the award for the Non Profit Category. The Y.E.S. Awards recognize businesses and organizations who have visually enhanced the surrounding community by their construction project, renovation, or remodel, thus improving the overall look of an area. Accepting the award on behalf of the City of Yakima and Yakima Convention Center was City Manager Dick Zais.
Since opening last October, the plaza has become a popular location for outdoor gatherings and celebrations by meeting planners and local residents. To book the Plaza contact the convention center staff at (509) 576-6370.
