Ask and ye shall receive, said two local businesses that banded together to be the title sponsors for the Yakima Fourth of July celebration.

Late last year the city of Yakima announced that because of budget cuts, it wouldn't be possible to fund the city's 28th annual Fourth of July celebration. Losing this event would have been a big loss for the community members who look forward to its every year. But thankfully ,Tire Centers of Yakima and Yakima Federal Savings and Loan stepped up to fund the event.

According to a recent article by the Yakima Herald-Republic, the two businesses have filled the $25,000 gap needed to put the celebration on.
