NORMAN –  An Oklahoma City Thunder fan pack, a free night at the Hard Rock Hotel, 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 6 p.m. Oct. 25 at Sooner Legends, on the corner of Lindsey Street and 24th Avenue  Southwest 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 24th year to organize this charity auction. Last year’s event raised more than $12,000 to support center’s community programming for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

“The Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law has been helping us for over 22 years, and their donation has come to be a kind of support that we can depend on in difficult times,” said Joann Smith, executive director of the Women’s Resource Center of Norman. “We appreciate their support even more because it’s women helping women, and that is what our center is all about.”
