Mom Marisela Preciado and Elks member Cody Reed stand with Preciado’s 7-year-old son, Xavier, whose name was drawn for one of the large prizes at the Elks Children’s Christmas Party on Dec. 21. Between personal and business donations and the Elks Club’s own contributions, approximately $2,500 goes into hosting the party each year. The entire operation, including the food and gifts, costs about $8,000.
