LUBBOCK, Texas -

The "Red Shoe Shindig" celebrates 30 years of service to families in need.

The event, part of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Southwest, hosted both silent and live auctions to benefit critically ill or injured children.

Money raised during the auctions will remain in West Texas to support families in this area.

"I love Lubbock, Lubbock is my home and one of the things that I pride Lubbock so much on is it really takes care of those that are in need. The families that we see and take care of, they are in need. We have a great support system," Lauren Pittman, outreach coordinator for RMHC of the Southwest said.

The goal of the RMHC is to keep families together and establish financial stability.
