Elks Lodge fundraiser sending teens to Rangers game

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A fundraiser at the Elks Lodge Saturday was aimed at bringing a spark of life and excitement back into the lives of some teenagers undergoing medical treatment.

Thanks to the benefit, two teens with life-threatening illnesses will be attending a Rangers game.

Organizers are hoping the family will be able to enjoy some quality family time during their get-away.

Elks Lodge President Patti Russell said the fundraiser was meant to "help the family get to Arlington get to watch the Rangers. All of this is to pay for their board, their food, their gas money - so they can get a weekend away where they don't have to worry about some of the things they are actually going through."

Shelby, being treated at Covenant, and Hunter, being treated at UMC, were the recipients of the Ranger tickets.
