Ansley Kubecka shows off tickets from items donated to the Bay City High School Boutique clothing and personal hygiene product drive Sunday, Dec. 6. Chau issued over 700 tickets alone on Sunday.

    The deadline to win $500 for donating to the Bay City High School Boutique clothing drive is Thursday, Dec. 17.
   Each gently used and clean clothing item earns the donator one raffle ticket while new items earn two tickets per item.
   Item donations must be scheduled with Ms. Bell by calling 979-401-1144 and participants must be 18 years or older.
   The prize money is sponsored by Jennifer Chau – Matagorda County Attorney-elect, realtor, and owner of Chau Law Firm.
   “I wanted to challenge myself at the end of this year to do 30 days of giving,” said Chau explaining her reason for sponsoring the raffle event.
   “Every day, I wanted to give a donation of some kind, whether financially or in other ways. I saw a request for help to stock the boutique on Facebook one day and was surprised that our area had one and proud that we did.
   “Any time a school, organization, or other entity goes out of their way to provide access or goods for a party in need, I would like to support it. I also thought to myself about how hard it was for charities this year to raise donations due to the pandemic,” she added.
   Chau explained that she wanted to think of a way people could donate without spending a lot of money.
   “One thing about cleaning out you and your families’ clothes is that you realize how much abundance you really have,” she said.
   “Also, children grow so fast and it’s hard to keep up with that demand,” Chau added.
