LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - This weekend, KTRE-TV will celebrate 60 years of being on the air in the Pineywoods.
We've selected 4 winners for our '60th Anniversary Giveaway', one of which is the Janelle Grum Family Crisis Center.
The shelter is a non-profit organization designed to enhance the safety of women, children and men by providing services to reduce family violence and sexual assault.
"That's significant for our organization because we currently don't have any sort of advertising budget. This will allow us to really promote to our service area what we do provide for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault," said Heather Karyte, Executive Director, Janelle Grum Family Crisis Center.
This is all leading up to our 60th birthday party on August 29th from 11 am - 3 pm at KTRE Studios off Highway 69 on 358 TV Road.
You'll be able to take a tour of our studio, meet the KTRE anchors, and there will be free food and activities for kids.
