Woodward, Okla. — October is a time for dressing up.  And Northwest Domestic Crisis Services is asking area citizens to dress up for a cause for its 2nd annual "Woodward Bites" fundraiser on Oct. 16.

But instead of a costume, the domestic crisis center wants you to don your semi-formal attire for this "elegant" cocktail party, which will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Woodward Conference Center.

Kristi Hill, child advocate with the crisis center, said that attendees can come "as dressy as they want."

Hill explained the event is "an opportunity for people to dress up and enjoy each other's company."

"It's just a relaxing evening," she said, in which attendees will be able to listen to live piano music while enjoying heavy hors d'oeuvres and wine and beer.

"This year there's also something special.  Mead's Jewelers is donating a diamond and we will be selling chances to win it," Hill said.

Tickets are available for purchase at Persimmon Creek, Big Dan's Steakhouse or at the Northwest Domestic Crisis Services office at 1024 22nd St.

Or if you are unable to go by any of these locations, you can contact the crisis center at 256-1215 to order tickets and "we'll be glad to deliver them," Hill said.

Tickets are sold by the couple, "but that doesn't mean that singles can't come; we will accommodate them," she said.

Proceeds from the evening go to support Northwest Domestic Crisis Center and its programs which seek to help victims of domestic violence.

"This month is Domestic Violence Awareness Month which is why we do this in October," Hill said.
