29th annual auction will raise funds for women’s center here

On Saturday, April 27, the Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center will host its 29th Annual Auction.
The silent and live auctions will be held in the LBJ Student Center ballroom on the Texas State University campus beginning at 6 p.m. Free parking provided.
Organizers invite area residents to “spend a relaxing night out in San Marcos. Enjoy famous Lockhart barbecue, browse through the many auctions items, (trips, jewelry, artwork, gift certificates, collectables and more) and mingle with friends, all for a $25 donation. Cash bar available.
Last year more than 300 community members attended the auction to help raise $73,000 for HCWC.
The funds are vital in providing direct services to victims of family violence, sexual assault and child abuse in the area, HCWC officials said.
In its 33 years of service, the Hays Caldwell Women’s Center has helped more than 25,000 people in Hays and Caldwell counties. That need, officials say, is growing.
Contributions allow HCWC to continue to provide direct services to those affected by family violence, sexual assault and child abuse as well as actively educate the public in prevention and awareness.  
A portion of donations to the auction may be tax deductible for individuals or businesses.
Those who have auction items to donate for the auction are asked to contact Glenda Muñoz at 396-3404, ext. 248. HCWC can also arrange to pick up donations.
 There are various levels of sponsorships available to individuals and businesses.
Donations will be publicly acknowledged in the auction program and in a full-page newspaper ad following the event. Tickets for the event are $25 per person and may be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 396-3404.
