March 2, 2006


Albany -- The Albany Civil Rights Museum and a youth baseball league get big checks from the King Day Celebration committee.

Each year, the King Day Celebration holds a fundraiser dinner in February. The group recognizes community servants and raises money for organizations that spread the message of Martin Luther King, Junior and help children.

Thursday, they gave $15,000 checks to the Civil Rights Museum and the Dixie Youth Baseball League.

"In order to enhance our future, we should strenghten our children. For that reason, we chose to help organizations that work directly with children," said Helen Young, King Day Celebration President.

"We service the children on the southside, which is bascially a proverty-stricken area. So this money will help us keep our registration fees lower so it won't be such a burden to our parents," sais Hochi Lumpkin, Dixie Youth Baseball President.

Dixe Youth Baseball also plans to use the money to by equipment for the teams.
