“Lugo Charities Inc. and the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge 385 is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 8th Annual “Bike In A Box” Christmas event on Saturday, December 10, 2016 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm at the Elk’s Lodge that is located at 1800 North Oracle Road.


A special invitation to 500 under-privileged children selected from youth organizations, schools, churches, and children-support agencies in the Greater Tucson area will be attending this special day of giving.

Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at 10:30 am to greet the children. Each child that has been pre-selected will receive one of five-hundred (500) bicycles that we are planning to give away, along with a bike safety helmet provided by Tucson Medical Center of the Children’s Miracle Network.

The bicycles will remain in the box so that the parents or guardians can, together with the child, assemble the bicycle in promoting the true Christmas spirit and teaching the children the basic assembly and adjustments to their new bike.”

Carolyn’s note: Talk show host John C. Scott (on new progressivevoice radio show KEVT 1210 AM on the dial) will be raising $ today and tomorrow (December 1 and 2) for this great effort. Organizer Jesse Lugo will be joining John on the radio and has been raising funds for these bikes for 7 years.  John & Jesse are pictured above in the circle, photo courtesy of Lugo Charities Inc.    You can call John’s radio show at 520- 807-7090/807-7094 to donate as well.
