March 17,2019- AZ Valley of the Sun Give Back Day at Salt River Fields!

The Arizona Valley of the Sun IMA Chapter teamed up with Salt River Fields to participate in the “Give Back Day with the IMA” Sunday, March 17th. Eight volunteers took to the field scanning tickets, monitoring the outfield lawn, and helping fans find their seats as the Arizona Diamondbacks took on the Chicago White Sox. The SRF staff made the afternoon even more of a homerun by providing lunch to our team! It was a great opportunity to serve our community and help support the Salt River Fields staff.
