A local charity hosted a bike and car show to raise awareness about domestic violence.
The Purple Paint Project's Rally Against Domestic Violence was held Saturday morning at Blu Bar and Grill in Gates.
There was a live band, local vendors and a motorcycle and car judging contest.
Christine Kubida, Fundraising and Event Coordinator, says she wanted to bring the community together under an umbrella of awareness.
"Today actually is really just about bringing the community together to have a good time," Kubida said. "Family friendly, bikes, cars, food, good music here at Blu Bar and Grill and having a few vendors from the community."
"There is a great silence around domestic abuse," said Pat Smith, the Executive Director of Springs Charities. "You think everyone knows about it but very few people want to talk about it if they're abused. So we want to bring it out in the open, take away the stigma, take away the embarrassment involved, and get these women to come forth if they're being abused and know that there is help out there for them."
All proceeds from the event will benefit local women and children who are victims of domestic violence.
