Fun N Sun park residents host fundraiser for San Benito Boys & Girls Club

SAN BENITO — There weren’t a whole lot of “yeehas” yesterday after-noon, but everyone was dressed like a cowboy or cowgirl for a good cause.

The annual Western Days fundraiser for the San Benito Boys and Girls Club took place at the Fun N Sun RV Resort.

“The event is awesome,” said Tony Silvestro, park manager. “The planning put into this and the amount of people that put this together is phenomenal.”

Park residents rode into the event in their golf carts, on bikes and even in cars looking as though they were from the Wild West.

Those not wearing their western wear were thrown in jail.

Last year the event raised $3,400 for the Boys and Girls Club. Organizers were shooting for more this year.
