Benson donates to Baltimore charities
Apr. 24, 2009 (The Dallas Morning News delivered by Newstex ) --

Kris Benson was with the Baltimore Orioles from 2004 to 2006, and he still has ties to the community. He and his wife, Anna, were part of a pregame ceremony in which they, along with the Orioles Charitable Foundation, donated $125,000 to five area charties. The Bensons will give more Sunday, presenting $125,000 to the Baltimore police department.

The Bensons created Benson's Battalion Foundation shortly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks while he was a member of the New York Mets. The Foundation's goal is to help purchase equipment local police and fire departments need to combat terrrorism. The donations this weekend were arranged when Benson was traded to Baltimore.
