October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and Women's Protective Services is trying to break the silence.
The candlelight vigil was held at Our Lady of the Grace Catholic Church and each candle represents Texas women who lost their lives to domestic violence. The message of the event was to show abusers that domestic violence will not be tolerated.
If you would like to raise awareness, you can attend a benefit concert with Donnie Allison at the Cactus Theater, on Thursday night. Tickets are $20 and proceeds go to WPS in Lubbock. Call 762-3233 for tickets or more information.
