The Tri-Cities Water Follies Association Wednesday announced HAPO Community Credit Union will be the Title Sponsor for the 2014 Water Follies and Columbia Cup Hydroplane Races.

For years, HAPO has sponsored the popular Over-the-River Air Show, and since 2009, has called itself the Official Sponsor of Summer. HAPO has also sponsors a number of other community events, including the River of Fire Fireworks show on the Columbia River near Columbia Park and Cool Desert Nights in Richland.

This new title will mean HAPO will sponsor the entire week of activities leading up to the 49th Annual running of the Columbia Cup July 25-27.

Previously, Con-Agra Foods Lamb-Weston had been the title sponsor since 2007.
