Bears Fans Donate to Fire Victims
The Yakima Bears were proud to present the American Red Cross with $1,110 Wednesday. The funds were raised during the team's most recent homestand to help the victims of the Taylor Bridge Fire in central Washington.
Money was accepted at each of the six games the Bears played from Thursday to Tuesday. There were cups at each concession stand and a bucket near the front gate where fans could drop cash donations. Bears fans also participated in nightly raffles with the winners taking home a variety of jerseys and team-signed baseballs.
"It was exciting to see the response from our fans, who were inspiring with their generosity," said Bears general manager K.L. Wombacher.
