HAPO Center hosts ribbon cutting ceremony
PASCO, Wash. — The TRAC Center has officially been renamed to the HAPO Center.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday morning to celebrate the occasion. HAPO Credit Union settled a $1 million agreement for the naming rights earlier this year. It’ll run for a 10-year period. The venue will go with several other HAPO named facilities across the Tri-Cities.
“HAPO steps up once again. We got the HAPO Community Stage in Richland, and the HAPO Hangout at the Toyota Center in Kennewick, and here we have a HAPO named facility in Pasco as well,” said Lori Mattson, President & CEO of Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce.
It’s still owned by Franklin County, and will be supported by the City of Pasco.
“We really appreciate the funds and the naming rights the funding package that HAPO put together as well to bring some new life into this great place and can go another 24 years,” Mattson said.
The HAPO Center will continue to provide space for trade, recreation, commerce events and more.
