Homeless Man Victim of Acid Attack

As many of you know, last night (one of the coldest nights of the year) someone threw three bottles filled with hydrochloric acid at a homeless person sleeping on the sidewalk near 5th Avenue and 15th Street in St Pete.  Luckily, no one was seriously hurt.  Another example of random cruelty towards the homeless.

What does this have to do with the Rays?

The attack occurred right outside of St. Vincent De Paul, a soup kitchen that serves the local homeless population.  Turns out, BJ Upton believes in their mission, and is doing his part to help.  On January 25, 2010, at the Hunter's Green Country Club BJ will be hosting his Second Annual BJ Upton Celebrity Golf Classic, with proceeds going to St. Vincent De Paul.  It will include a tournament and a charity auction.  Last years event included appearances by Scott Kazmir, Chad Orvella, Dan Wheeler, Andy Sonnanstine James Shields, Justin Upton Chris Young, Ryan Zimmerman, Dexter Fowler, Joel Hanrahan, Boof Bonser, Brian McRae, former NHL player Dave Andreychuk, and wrestler Nasty Nobs.

For more information, contact Latricia Goding (lagoding@hotmail.com or 757-532-8701.  She sent me a flyer which I have posted here.  If you can't swing the money for a tournament like this, please pass this along to someone who might and/or consider giving a direct donation through their website.
