The Lawrence County Circle of Friends raised $37,000 for Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock during the annual Tips for Tots fund-raiser Saturday night at the Walnut Ridge Country Club.

Awards went to Heath Teel of Walnut Ridge, whose table had an Egyptian theme, for most money raised and Alyson Williams and Jennifer Ditto of Walnut Ridge and Michelle Evans of Smithville for most creative for their "white trash" theme.

Others hosting tables were: Shane and Beth Davis with an Oktoberfest theme, Lawrence Health Foundation with a medical theme, Kevin and Nicole Weitkamp with a Razorback theme and Beta Sigma Phi of Pocahontas with a "just ducky" theme.

Ronnie "Frog" Light of Minturn served as auctioneer during the live auction.

Glenn Murphy of Walnut Ridge was the winner of a cruise that was given away through a "pick a card" giveaway. Participants purchased a card for $50 with the winning card, in this case the eight of diamonds, winning the cruise.
