This past Saturday, the baseball community and friends and family gathered at McAlister’s Deli in Murfreesboro for Dinner with Devin, an event that raised funds for the Devin Cairo Benefit Fund. The event was slated to begin at 5:00 pm, and as the hour approached, so did the community. By 5:30 pm, every table in McAlister’s was full, and the lines to order were 7-8 deep.
By the end of the night, those who came raised over $3000 for the benefit fund. T-shirts and bracelets were sold, and many people gave donations. Also, many of the area high school baseball teams were represented in their support of a baseball brother. Members of the Oakland baseball program cleared tables and refilled drinks throughout the night.
A sincere thank you to McAlister’s Deli and the employees who helped make this a great night for Devin and his family.
