E-T Staff Report

The Texas Twisters will host their annual Flip-A-Thon from 7-8 p.m. tonight, with an added cause to their fundraising.

The event raises money for the team’s trip to the national competition. Donors pledge money for every back-handspring the young gymnasts can complete in one hour.

Tonight, in addition to the team fundraising, the gym will also be accepting donations of clothing and other goods to benefit Twister Emmy Rodriguez. The Rodriguez family lost their home in an apartment fire on Monday.

The Twisters’ gym is located on FM 205 across from Flamingo Bingo.
