July 24- Moo Monday with the Yakima Pippins

DFW is sponsoring “Moo Mondays” with the Yakima Pippins, a Yakima Valley minor league baseball team. Moo Mondays celebrate the local dairy community and a portion of the proceeds from each milk and ice cream product sold at the game will be donated to 2nd Harvest to help support the “Dairy for Life” program which delivers fresh milk to local food banks. Each Moo Monday, a local dairy farm family throws out the first apple (pitch).
