Brooke Mulford Benefit

The owner's of Market Street Inn, Rob and Amy Mulford, are experiencing a parents worst nightmare. Their 4 year old daughter, Brooke, has been diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare cancer primarily found in infants and small children. Rob, Amy and Brooke are currently spending every moment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with Brooke has her tests and treatments continue.

Michelle Thomas of the Bank of Delmarva along with the staff and management of Market Street are holding "Brooke Day" at the restaurant on Sunday - January 18th from 11am till 11pm. Lunch is served from 11 to 4 and dinner from 4 to 11pm and reservations are recommended. This event will be an attempt to raise funds for the Mulfords as they struggle through these trying times with their daughter.

As part of this event I have arranged to have some former Baltimore Orioles players and current coaches to be there to sign autographs and try to help with the fundraising efforts. They will be on hand from 1 - 3pm to sign and mingle with the crowd. Also appearing will be "Sherman" from the Shorebirds, he'll be on hand from 1:30 till 2:30pm.

Here is a list of the players and coaches for the autograph session:

Ryan Minor - Former O's infielder (replaced Cal Ripkin) and current Shorebirds Coach
Gary Kendall - Former Shorebirds Manager and current Aberdeen Ironbirds Manager
Dave Schuler - Former Shorebirds Pitching Coach and former major league pitcher with Angels & Braves
Ross Grimsley - Former O's pitcher and current Pitching Coach with Augusta Greenjackets
Bill Swaggerty - Former O's Pitcher and current Commissioner of JSB Baseball
Tim Nordbrook - Former O's infielder

It's going to be a fun filled day at the restaurant and we hope to raise a lot of money for Brooke.

If you could post this I would appreciate it.

Bryan took an early retirement from SFD many years ago to pursue other interests but he often attends the bi-weekly retirees breakfast at Dayton's. Thanks Bryan for all you have done to get players and Orioles staff to attend this benefit to help Brooke and her family.
