Senator Eddie Lucio Jr. is hosting some fun events this weekend to raise money for a good cause.

Friday the Senator held a charity golf tournament at the Fort Brown Golf course.
60 golfers including rock star Ricky Phillips from the band Styx took part in a round of golf.
The money raised will go toward the Senator's scholarship fund which gives 64 high school seniors a $500 dollar scholarship for college.

"I have met a lot of them years later who were recipients, and they tell me their success stories and we put them on our website. We invite people to look at
and know more about this important endeavor. “said Lucio Jr.

"The plus about this is it’s for kids, giving kids a leg up and his scholarship fund, and it is something I did not want to miss out on, I was very honored that he would honor and include me in this." said Phillips.

Saturday there will be a *Bikes to Beach Tour* event. Participants will bike to South Padre Island from either Harlingen or Los Fresnos followed by a concert at the finish line by Ricky Phillips of Styx.
