Women's Protective Services will host its annual tractor benefit drawing Saturday, August 11. Every cent raised will go directly to protecting and caring for victims of domestic violence.

"Clothing, food, medical care, prescriptions, school supplies, everything that you can think of that we use in our own lives we need to supply them here. On any given day, there's 350 people out here that are victims," Jason Henry, Executive Director of Women's Protective Services, said. 

The event starts at 5:30 p.m. Tickets admit two, enter you into the drawing and are $100. 

Raffle items include John Deere tractor and trailer package, two operating gators and a commercial mower.
