2014 Ted Robertson - Community Service Award

The Ted Robertson Community Service Award was established in 1989 by the Past Chairs of the Board of the  Greater Yakima Chamber, to honor a person each year who has made significant contributions to the betterment of the Yakima Valley.

Ted Robertson, publisher of the Yakima Herald Republic from 1938 to 1972, believed that “good fortune earned in a community should be shared with that community.”

He was a major contributor to worthy causes in Yakima in an effort to improve the quality of life for all the citizens of Yakima. Ted believed in honoring individuals for their distinguished commitment to community service.

The Ted Robertson Community Service Award recipient(s) will be honored at the Annual Greater Yakima Chamber Awards ~ Black &White Gala, Thursday, October 9th, at the Yakima Valley Sundome at State Fair Park. Celebrate with us as we present Yakima’s most prestigious Community Service Award. For ticket information call the Greater Yakima Chamber of  Commerce: 509.248.2021 online
