Albany- Domestic violence is often a cycle in families and many of the offenders are between 16 years old and 20 years old.
That's why the Dougherty County's Domestic Violence task force has been raising money for a school program through a raffle. Friday they handed out the prizes that included a weekend getaway and a bed liner donated by Scott Peterman.
The money will be used for a program to teach kids about breaking the cycle.
"What we want to do is go into the schools and teach the children that domestic violence is not something that they want to grow up as their legacy," said Shelly Faulk, chairperson of the task force.
William Weeks of Albany won the raffle for the weekend getaway. Kevin O'Lear of Albany won the truck bed liner.
