Giving Back

This article appeared in the Fall 2008 issue of Texoma Living!.

There’s a great story behind the grand prize in a fundraiser to benefit the Child & Family Guidance Center of Texoma. Gerald Knox bought a rare 2003 Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Road King motorcycle. He kept it preserved as a collectible with just 18 miles on the odometer. When Knox decided this summer to relocate out of the area he donated the bike to the Guidance Center to raffle for charity. The organization provides uninsured and under-insured low-income Texoma families high quality psychological services to help them cope with trauma, tragedy, and turmoil in their lives. The agency covers Grayson, Fannin and Cooke counties. About one-third of the agency’s budget comes from the support of individuals, businesses and fundraisers. The drawing is set for October 4 and tickets are available at Texoma Harley-Davidson.
