Annual Raleigh banquet to donate to Montoyos

The Raleigh (N.C.) Hot Stove League, which will have its 58th annual banquet Tuesday, will donate proceeds from that night's silent auction to the Durham Bulls' Montoyo Fund.

The Hot Stove League will add $1,000 to the final haul for Alex Montoyo, the infant son of former Biscuits manager and current Durham manager Charlie. Alex was born in October with a heart defect and remains at the UCLA Medical Center.

The banquet regularly draws between 350-400 people, said Durham announcer Neil Solondz, a member of the Hot Stove League's board. The Bulls are accepting donations through Feb. 14 and are matching the first $10,000 raised for the Montoyo family.

I gave a donation at the Bull's web page, and you have to be aware that although it will say there is a $7 and some odd amount for S&H, over and above your donation amount, it won't be actually charged to your credit card. So when you do donate, don't worry about that S&H!
