CAIRO, GA (WALB) - The Jackie Robinson Boys and Girls Club hosted its Diamond Affair dinner Thursday night.

This is the club's second year hosting the fundraiser.

Special guest speakers such as Florida State University Baseball Coach Mike Martin was there.

Board members said they hope this event will raise awareness of the benefits this club offers to the community.

Board Member Charles Renaud said, “Without the financial support of these people, the Boys and Girls Club is a struggle. In a small town like Cairo, we have to reach out and show that we make a difference.”

The event raised $65,000 last year.

They're auctioned off a brand new golf cart this year.
