Howard of the Dodgers wrote to the Echo Park Animal Alliance today that the Dodgers would be co-hosting a benefit for the Red Cross and its effort to help people affected by the fires. The benefit will be televised. To this, Chicken Corner says: Go, Dodgers! This is a wonderful and appropriate service to the region. But Chicken Corner would be remiss not to point out a fire issue right in the Dodgers' front, back and side yards, especially on the east side of the park, which is where the stadium is located. On a recent stroll through the north-east sections of the park I saw that there was trash all over the place, and there was so much uncleared brush on the hillsides above the Golden State Freeway...it's ready to burn. How about an inexpensive -- and televised
-- clean-up over there?
Dear Neighbor: In light of the terrible fire tragedy that has displaced thousands of Southern California families, the Los Angeles Dodgers have partnered with KCBS2/KCAL9 to have a day-long fundraiser at Dodger Stadium tomorrow, Friday, October 26th and Monday, October 27th from 5:00AM to 11:00PM. All monies collected will go to the American Red Cross to aid in their humanitarian efforts towards this disaster.
