BALTIMORE — A local non-profit is teaming up with Bengies Drive-in and the Baltimore Orioles to raise money for homeless veterans.

The Baltimore Station, which is an organization that helps veterans dealing with homelessness and substance abuse, is hosting the event called Major League Movie Night

Kim Callari, who is the director of development at The Baltimore Station, said the money will help with rising costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The money we raise tomorrow night will go to food cost, water, and transportation,” she said. “The gentlemen have to get to and from doctors and dentist appointments.”

She said virus restrictions have made it hard to raise money, adding that half of their budget is from donations.

“It’s really put us in a tough spot financially,” she said.

Callari said the non-profit helps about 300 veterans a year. She said the organization still needs to raise $1 million dollars.

The event will be held at Bengies Drive-In in Middle River at 7:00 p.m.. The tickets are $75 per car, which include the movie, drinks and food provided by Mission BBQ.

Masks will also be required.
