Ride Benefiting St. Jude's Hospital

by Chris Cato

The Angelina County Sheriff's Posse saddled up and rode out Saturday morning. It wasn't to wrangle up any bad guys, though. It was to round up some cash for St. Jude's Research Hospital.

This was the 10th annual trail ride benefiting St. Jude's. The four-hour ride brought in people of all ages for the day, but most importantly, it brought in cash for the hospital.

Tom Squyres, the event coordinator said, "A grand total up to this point of all our trail rides we've given, we've raised $20,500 dollars up to this point, not counting today."

After the ride, an auction was held to raise some money. All in all, about $3,000 was raised for St. Jude's.
