Boots and Tips

Decorated boots were auctioned during the White Mountain SAFE House Boots & Tips event last Wednesday at Buffalo Bills Tavern and Grill in Show Low . All proceeds raised during the event benefit the non-profit organization that provides services, support and resources to victims of domestic violence.

SHOW LOW — The White Mountain SAFE House (WMSH) held its fourth annual Boots & Tips dinner at Buffalo Bills Tavern and Grill on Wednesday, Aug. 21.

During the Boots & Tips event, guests ordered from the regular dinner menu and tipped in honor and support of the White Mountain SAFE House.

The best part is that one hundred percent of the “tips” received support the SAFE House mission as a private, nonprofit organization which operates a local shelter for victims of domestic violence.

A decorated western boots auction, a balloon auction, 50/50 raffle and hourly blitz item raffles were spread throughout the evening.

The attendees enjoyed live music by favorite local group Blue Tattoo Trio.

Restaurant owner Gary Martinson plays a significant role in making the event a success and the WMSF board says they are incredibly thankful to Martinson, their board of directors and the supportive community.

“We currently have an ongoing opportunity to support the SAFE House by purchasing our tee shirts every Saturday at the Show Low Main Street Farmer’s Market and at the Battle of the Bands at Frontier field on Saturday, August 31,” says board president Rob Turnwall.

The White Mountain SAFE House is division of ChangePoint Integrated Health. It’s also a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to providing shelter, care, and advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and elder abuse
