Area man shows the spirit of giving

BRUCEVILLE-EDDY, TX (KXXV) - An Eddy man who won free electricity is showing the spirit of giving by donating his prize to those in need.

Rick Wilson won three months of free electricity from TXU's Beat the Heat Sweepstakes. He decided to turn his second-place winnings into a check, which he donated to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston.

"Mr. Wilson’s decision to donate his winnings is a living example of the spirit and season of giving, and we are privileged to honor his request,” said Michael Grasso, chief marketing officer for TXU Energy. “It’s always great to see how the winners benefit from these types of sweepstakes, and this was certainly a first."
