Corsicana — Ten bucks. What will it get you these days? Maybe lunch. An eighth of a tank of gas. A pound of bacon.
What about a beautiful weekend trip near the Texas coast? While helping an incredible local cause? You bet.
Michael and Natalie O'Neill, owners of the Corsicana Cancer Center, are offering chances for a weekend trip to their guesthouse bed and breakfast in Kemah, about 25 miles southeast of downtown Houston. The weekend getaway is for four adults, or two adults and their children, and tickets for the drawing are only $10 each.
And all of the proceeds go to the Navarro County Relay for Life, which benefits the American Cancer Society. The drawing is part of the fundraising efforts for the Corsicana Cancer Center Relay for Life team.
“We figure people like to come down to Houston and Galveston, and Kemah and NASA,” Natalie said. “This is affordable. For $10, you can get a nice weekend.”
The Navarro County Relay for Life is scheduled for May 17 at Mildred High School. The drawing will take place at that event, and tickets are available in advance at the Corsicana Cancer Center, 306 Hospital Drive. The team will also be selling tickets during the Relay for Life.
