    Mansfield Mayor David Cook is hopeful they'll be able to keep the streak alive this year, but says it's the entire North Texas community that ultimately comes out on top.

    "For those of us that know the mission of the Salvation Army -- "Doing the Most Good" -- that warms your heart," said Cook. "And you know that most of the money that's being raised is going directly to families that are in need."

    Last year, the mayors raised more than $90,000. Their goal this year is to reach $100,000.
