HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
Lots of people turned out Friday night at Joe Davis Stadium, not just to support the home team, but to support a local charity.
The Stars game Friday night was a benefit game for Crisis Services of North Alabama. Fifty percent of the ticket sales will be donated to CSNA.
Crisis Services provides shelter and support for women and children who are victims of domestic abuse.
"We operate the Help Line. We operate Hope Place, which is two domestic violence shelters, suicide prevention. We provide sexual assault nurses, exams and court advocates," said Pam Williams with CSNA.
Over 45,000 lives were directly impacted last year because of Crisis Services.
They are facing a critical shortfall in funding this year, and services may have to be cut.
That is why the fundraiser Friday night was so important.
