Deer Crossing Saloon, located at FM 1518 in Selma, has scheduled a motorcycle morning "fund" run and silent auction to benefit Cavazos and his family.
Riders have been asked to meet Deer Crossing Saloon at 10 a.m. The ride and drive begins at 11:30 and will go to the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels and back to the saloon.
A donation of $20 is encouraged from each rider. Riders are also encouraged to put an American flag on their cars or motorcycles. All proceeds will be donated to the Cavazos family.
A few hours later, Big Texas Ice House located at 16620 San Pedro Avenue will host a benefit for the Cavazos family from noon to 6 p.m.
Plates will be sold for $10, and there will also be a silent auction.
