Tornado relief benefit Monday in Bowie

“Texas Tunes for Tornado Relief” comes to Bowie’s Pelham Park on June 29 to raise funds for disaster relief in the community.
Bowie was devastated by a May 22 F1 tornado destroying and damaging more than 400 homes and businesses. Now is the time to help out and have a fun evening.
Bring your lawn chairs, your dollars and get ready for a great time at the city pool pavilion area from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
All the activities are free, but participants will be asked to make a donation. Money will go into the disaster relief fund set up at Legend Bank in Bowie. For more about the fund or to donate go to: bowietexasedc.com.
The summer evening looks to be great fun with games, music and food.
