BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — 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 http://www.eddielucioscholarships.org/
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.
