Behind those dazzling smiles lies the true grit of these men and how important it is for men to stand up against Family Violence. With this issue so commonly affecting a large number of women, it is easy to forget that there are strong men who recognize that when inequality exists we are all affected.

12th Annual Custom Spur Show & Live Auction

Attendees at the 12th Annual Custom Spur Show and Live Auction enjoyed a fun-filled evening full of excellent food, good fellowship, and Texas-style entertainment.  WPS partnered with 26 spur makers throughout the country to make this year’s live auction both spirited and exciting.  We welcomed several new spur makers to the event and they were not short on style and skill. Their work combined with the fine craftsmanship of those that have been with us for many years treated all who attended to a magnificent live auction ending in $39,150 in total sales.  Guests also appreciated a fine dinner by the Overton Hotel. Representative Charles Perry delivered the invocation and a proclamation recognizing the work done by WPS presented by Mayor Pro-Tem, Karon Gibson.  The event ended with country artist, Kyle Park and his band giving everyone award winning music to enjoy, dance and celebrate the occasion. The event was a success, benefitting victims of domestic violence and their dependent children.  The Women’s Protective Services 12th Annual Spur Auction would not been possible without our supporters who understand that there is still so much work to be done and that together we are working hard to end the violence.  Thank you for making this year’s event a prosperous one. Thank you, Kimberly Kinney Lara for chairing this wonderful event!
