One of the auctioned items was a snowcone birthday party for Jerzy, the court dog. She visits Rogers, Mayes and Craig Counties every week to help children at the courthouse to offer them a "security blanket" if they're faced with uncomfortable situations.

This year Dewayne Howard was honored as PAL Mentor of The Year at the fundraiser.
