Winston-Salem, NC - Fans attending the Wake Forest baseball game this weekend have the opportunity to help the people of Boston.

All the ticket proceeds will go to the One Fund Boston from this weekend's series where Wake Forest plays Boston College.

Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino formed the One Fund Boston after the Boston bombings. The money raised will help the families affected by Monday's attack.

Hundreds of people filled the stands at Gene Hooks Field Saturday cheering on the Deacons and the Eagles, but many people were sporting gear from another baseball team, the Boston Red Sox.

"Boston has been through such a tragic event. It started Monday and it ended last night, and it was just so wonderful and it was such a great feeling and heaviness brought off of our hearts, knowing that these people were found," said Alison Reidy-Bialobok who attending the game. 

Before the game started, there was a moment of silence for the people of Boston, and two Winston-Salem residents who ran in the Boston Marathon threw out the first pitch at Saturday's game.
