Mark your calendars for Monday, July 6 at El Chico beginning at 5 p.m. for a very special fundraiser for the Texarkana, Ark., Dixie AA 8U West Division All Stars baseball team. From 5 p.m, until closing at El Chico, just mention you are supporting the Texarkana West Division All Stars to your hostess when you dine-in or at the time of placing your carry-out order and at the end of the night El Chico’s will be donating 10 percent of the evening’s profit to the team. Ray Fox whose son was selected as one of the All Stars says, "We'd like to make this the biggest fundraising event El Chico’s has ever seen. We hope that you’ll come out and help support our young men to reach their goal.

“Baseball is a challenging game both physically and mentally but there are always the players who really set the bar high and push themselves above and beyond to make everyone know they really mean business. Our All Stars have done just that. It takes heart, dedication, and hard work to really become an All Star but no matter the qualities and natural talent the boys possess there are always expenses to bring everything back to reality.

Fox went on to say that over the next few weeks the team will be participating in several fundraising activities and will also be accepting the generosity of some who give monetary donations.

"All of this together will go to pay for new uniforms, tournament fees, and other team expenses but most of all, if our boys win the Arkansas State tournament in July, your support will be sending them to North Myrtle Beach South Carolina for the 2015 Dixie Youth AA World Series to represent not only Texarkana but the entire state of Arkansas in this national event. “
