East Texans teamed up Thursday night to raise money for an organization that provides shelter and resources for victims of family violence.

Donors showed up to a wine and cheese fundraiser in Tyler at the home of Nancy and Robert Patterson. The event raised $230,825 for the East Texas Crisis Center.

Board member, volunteer and long-time donor Barbara Shtofman was honored as well.
