Members of the Texas Trio Classic joined with Wellness Matagorda last week at Matagorda Regional Medical Center’s rehabilitation and fitness center at the shelter dome. The Texas Trio team was at the dome on a dual mission. First, the group presented Loy Sneary and Renee Savage, Wellness Matagorda’s co-chairs, with an $8,500 check that will go toward the organization’s present project, a countywide aquatics center. Second, Texas Trio was filming all of the features in the MRMC dome, which also received previous Texas Trio donations through Wellness Matagorda. Texas Trio Classic’s annual fishing tournament was held last weekend in Matagorda. Proceeds from the tournament benefit several local charities.
