WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) - The Wichita Falls community came together Sunday to support a local non-profit organization.

The Spare Your Family and Strike Out Mental Illness event was held at Village Bowl.

The event is a fundraiser for the Taft Counseling Center, which provides mental health services to patients in Wichita Falls.

The organizers of the event said they are grateful to all their supporters and said it is important to take care of your mental health.

"Mental illness is not something someone chooses, but there is help for that, whether they can get counseling or maybe they need to go see you know a specialist and get some medication or stuff," said Dr. Rasco with the Taft Counseling Center. "But it's real important to take care of your mental health so that you can enjoy your family and your friends and everybody you know can just come out and have fun together."

The organizers said they hope to raise several thousand dollars from the event Sunday.

This was the third year they have held the event at Village Bowl.
