NORMAN – Footballs signed by Barry Switzer and Bob Stoops, an electric guitar signed by the Oklahoma band Hinder, salon packages, area restaurant gift certificates and fun evenings out with OU College of Law professors are among the many items up for bid at a fundraising auction 7 p.m. Oct. 13 at The Brewhouse, 110 W. Main in Norman. Hosted by OU Law’s Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law (OAWL), the event benefits the Women’s Resource Center of Norman.
This is OAWL’s 23rd year to organize this charity auction. Last year’s event raised more than $12,500 to support center’s community programming for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.
“If it were not for [OAWL’s] dependable, ongoing support, the Women’s Resource Center would not be able to offer these life-saving and life-changing services to the community,” said Joann Smith, executive director of the Women’s Resource Center of Norman.
OU Law Professor and OAWL Faculty Sponsor Mary Sue Backus said the auction has become a staple for both the center and OU Law students, thanks to strong civic backing.
