STEPHENVILLE (March 14, 2019) –– The Heroes and Handbags event featuring the heroes of area law enforcement, firefighters and emergency responders was a huge hit Thursday night as the guys shook their groove things to raise money for the Paluxy River Children’s Advocacy Center’s at the Twisted J in Stephenville.
Local heroes worked their purses and the catwalk as they danced and then hit the crowd for tips. The biggest “earner” shooting to walk away with the coveted title of Number One Hero.
In between the dancing were games of Bingo and attendees were busy marking their cards hoping to win one of the purses being displayed.
While the competition was hot and heavy and the dollar bills flowed, none rushed faster than the fans of Erath County Sheriff’s Department SGT Kent Howell.
From early on the competition, it was clear everyone else was just trying to keep up because when Howell whipped it — it was yay-yay, not nay-nay and the ladies filled his handbag to show their support!
