WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

April is Child Abuse Awareness Month and that means the annual Pinwheels for Patsy's House is about to start.

Next Saturday from noon until 3 p.m. 1,400 pinwheels will fill the lawn of Patterson Honda to kick off the month-long fundraiser for the children's advocacy center.

Each pinwheel represents a case of reported child abuse in Wichita County.

$20 removes one from the ground and helps the advocacy center continue their mission of working to reduce trauma to child abuse victims.
