CLAREMORE, Okla. — A charity auction over the weekend raised $25,000 for the Volunteers for Youth mentoring program in Rogers County that helps students succeed.
The roaring 20s event was held at the Claremore Conference Center on Saturday.
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.
