A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH is in effect for Austin, Burleson, Lee, and Washington Counties until 10am. A few strong to severe thunderstorms cannot be ruled out through mid-morning. Damaging winds in excess of 60mph and large hail are the main concern.
You might notice some "mini-houses" around town the next few weeks.
Voices for Children is holding their Casa's For CASA fundraiser.
The organization is selling tickets for a drawing where three custom-built playhouses will be given away.
The playhouses are eight feet long, eight feet wide and eight feet tall and donated by local homebuilders.
Organizers hope to raise 10-thousand dollars for the Court Appointed Special Advocates or CASA program that appoints volunteers to assist children in the care of Child Protective Services.
"The funds we raise for this CASA program, we serve Brazos County," said Deedra Baker with Voices for Children. "These are funds that stay right here in our community to serve the children in this community who need this help."
Tickets are $3 each or two for $5, and can be purchased at the Voices for Children Office in Bryan and both locations of Jacque's Toys and Books.
Beginning August 3, tickets will also be available at Post Oak Mall.
