WARNER ROBINS, GA-- The Warner Robins American Little League team took on the roll of cleaning crew Saturday to raise money for their trip to the state tournamnet.

WRALL cleared tables and opened doors for customers at the Chick-Fil-A on Highway 96 in Warner Robins.

"Well, it's been a fun experience just helping out the community," said player Ben Gibbs,"They've given so much with the sponsorships and helping us win and supporting us in our games."

Players had donation buckets for patrons to drop in money. The funds go to food, transportation and hotel rooms for the 13 boys and their coaches.

WRALL raised over $1,500 between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

"They've done a lot to put Warner Robins on the map, and they've done a lot to sell chicken," said restaurant owner Pat Braski,"It's our community. They get out and represent us well with such professionalism and style, it's the right thing to do to come back and support them in what they are doing."

Those who contributed $20 or more received two tickets to the Rockies vs. Braves game on July 30.

WRALL will spend five days in Richmond Hill, close to Savannah. Warner Robins plays West Point on July 20.
