Otis Redding III performs for Boys & Girls Club

CAIRO, GA (WALB) - Otis Redding III performs at Cairo High School for the Jackie Robinson Boys and Girls Club 3rd Annual Diamond Event.

Chairman of the Boys and Girls Club Laura Register said, "We've heard a lot of buzz in the community, a lot of people are excited that he's taking the time to come out here and cares enough and help us raise money for our kids."

Otis wasn't the only performance at the high school, girls and boys also performed special acts as well, and a lucky kid had the opportunity to perform with Otis.

Register added, "Its important because it gives the community a chance to see what we're doing with our kids."

The boys and girls club goal was to raise 25,000 dollars and they are happy to say they've already surpassed that.
