Annual ‘Toast to Dairy’ event on June 20 showcases Pennsylvania food and dairy products
Industry organizations have stepped up to support the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania’s annual “Toast to Dairy” event on June 20, which will be held in honor of National Dairy Month. The farm-to-fork celebration will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Historic Acres of Hershey in Elizabethtown, Pa., and support next-generation dairy education programs, including scholarships, internships and curriculum.
Premier sponsors of the event include the PA Preferred® Program, Savencia Cheese, Land O’Lakes, Turkey Hill and Dave and Janet Hileman. Other sponsors include Wawa, Phibro Animal Health, Herebin & Company Inc. and the Lancaster Dairy Herd Improvement Association. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
Entertainment for the evening will be provided by Jake and Robert Myers, otherwise known as Pyxus. The brothers grew up on a dairy farm in Jonesville, N.C., and will be performing dynamic folk rock, Americana and bluegrass music throughout the evening.
Tickets to the “Toast to Dairy” event cost $75 per person. All proceeds from the event will support the scholarships, internships and curriculum offered through the Dairy Excellence Foundation. To purchase tickets, visit centerfordairyexcellence.org/a-toast-to-dairy/.
