A little rain didn’t stop the Miracle League from having a good time at their picnic Saturday morning. Around 60 people gathered to play on their field at the Saul Alexander Playground, eat lunch, and celebrate a $5,000 donation from the Southern Barbecue Network.
The Southern Barbecue Network donates to a different charity every year. For Jim Harmon, the network’s president, the Summerville Miracle League was an easy choice.
“It’s because of what they do for the community,” he said. “They do so much for these folks.”
The Southern Barbecue Network, which spans across three states, is headquartered in Summerville, another reason why the network chose the Miracle League, Harmon said.
As the check was presented and the dollar amount was announced, gasps and cheers erupted from the crowd. 
Although Harmon did not know how the group would spend the money, he estimated it will be put toward covering the Miracle League’s operating expenses.
The Miracle League provides children and adults with mental and physical disabilities the opportunity to play baseball.
