GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) - A local business owner in Gibson County is getting into the holiday spirit with a surprise bike giveaway.

He's known as Big Mike and he owns Big Mike's Mobile Car Wash in Princeton but on Friday cars were out and bikes were in.

Playing the role of Santa Claus he wheeled out 15 bikes given to 15 kids for Christmas.

Big Mike is the brains behind the operation but he's gotten help from the community.

He's been working with other business owners to raise the money to buy these bikes for months.

He then teamed up with a guidance counselor in the North Gibson School Corporation to select and surprise the children.

Mike says this is only the second year for it but he expects to host many many more.

"There's so many people that need things for Christmas and I feel like, by me being a business owner, the little part that I do will make other people want to do things too," says Mike.

Big Mike says if you can give this holiday season, you should try to give.
