ODESSA - A gala to pay tribute to veterans took place in Odessa.
The Texas Civil Rights Project Gala and Fundraiser was held on Saturday night.
Two veterans were honored, followed by a dinner and dance.
Event organizers see this event as a great way to merge two very important issues.
“We're really trying to focus on the intersection of civil rights and veterans rights which is sometimes a strange area but we really believe both causes are worth fighting for and we are so happy so many people came out tonight,” Regional Director, Cassandra Champion, said.
All ticket sales went to the West Texas Justice for Veterans Campaign.
