On Saturday, Dec. 15 from 2-4 p.m. there will be a drawing at Methodist Hospital South in Jourdanton. Each of the businesses will bring the bike they are sponsoring and draw a winner out of their bucket for the bike.

“In turn, that winning ticket from each of the businesses goes into a Rotary bucket. One ticket is drawn for the split the pot. The rest of the money is going to go to CASA and CAST,” said Rotary member Tim Forrest.

The public is welcome to attend and enjoy a visit with Santa, hot chocolate and cookies.

“That is when we will draw the winning tickets for each of the bikes and give all the bikes away and give some money to each cause. One lucky winner will win some cash.”
