WPS enjoys 'outpouring of support' from John Deere Raffle

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Five lucky people are the proud owners of either a brand new John Deere Gator, or a golf cart, thanks to an event that raised money and awareness for domestic violence.

Women's Protective Services held their 13th Annual John Deere Raffle and Giveaway at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center on Saturday.

Four people won a John Deere Gator in the raffle and one person won a brand new golf cart.

Organizers say they had a big turnout. Some 500 people came out to support WPS.

Roy Rios with Women's Protective Services said, "We've done really well. We've had an outpouring of support from the community so we think we did really well. We'll be able to continue our services into the future."

All proceeds raised from this event will go directly to WPS.
