Fire benefit at Dodger Stadium

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's ready to burn. How about an inexpensive -- and televised
-- clean-up over there?

Howard wrote:

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.
