Patsy's House Pinwheels Campaign - KAUZ-TV: Newschannel 6 Now | Wichita Falls, TX

Patsy's House Pinwheels Campaign

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month.  This year marks the fifth Annual Pinwheels for Patsy's House campaign.  

Each year, Patsy's House places pinwheels at Patterson Honda. Each pinwheel represents one case of child abuse investigated in Wichita County.  This year that number is 1,705. 


The 2015 campaign kicks off Saturday, March 28. The event is open to the public and is located at Patterson Honda off of Old Jacksboro Highway in Wichita Falls. Patsy's House will have bounce houses, and free hot dogs. The event starts at 12 p.m. and ends at 3 p.m.


Starting today, and through the month of April, it takes just $20 to pull a pinwheel from the ground. The goal is to end child abuse one pinwheel at a time.
