Gotta Watch: Mystery Santa hides cash

Move over Santa, it's Pete time- For the last 20 years a man simply known as "Pete" has been leaving thousands of dollars worth of cash in creatively wrapped packages that he hides at a rehabilitation center in Indiana. He calls the center every year and says, "It's Pete time!" The more than $70,000 in donations has helped countless kids suffering from disabilities and brings a new Christmas icon to Evansville - the elusive Saint Pete.
