'Fishing for Food' event donates to Lawton Food Bank

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Fishing for Food held their 8th annual food drive on Saturday. All food donated will go directly to Lawton Food bank.

For every non-perishable food item someone gave, they received a raffle ticket. People had the chance to win prizes like bicycles, gift certificates and more.
Event organizer Michael Tenis said the day was dedicated to giving back.
