Johnny's Mattress Superstore aims to raise ten thousand dollars this weekend, for a local non-profit who's a vital presence in our community.

Representatives from five local organizations were sitting, playing games, eating and doing whatever else they could to stay awake and remain on their mattress in an effort to raise money and awareness for the Domestic Violence Shelter here in Richland County.

The goal is to raise $10,000 dollars, two-thousand per team for the shelter to use for their programs to curb domestic violence and its effect on our local families.

Johnny says Representatives from The Domestic Violence Shelter, Mansfield PD, Richland Sheriff's Dept, Family Life Counseling and Psychiatric Services and Richland County Children's Services were chosen to raise money because of their relationship with the shelter.

This event is the first of it's kind and executive director, Katherine Ezewa says she couldn't be happier about the turnout. The shelter only has 10 bedrooms available, plus overflow rooms, but they still need everyday items for these families. In an effort to assist with this, Johnny's invites you to bring non-perishable items, new blankets and toys to be used at the shelter.

The event began 5p.m. on Thursday and will continue throughout the weekend. The representative that stays awake the longest wins bragging rights and dinner at Ed Pickens Cafe on Main.

For more information, or to donate go to the www.dvshelter.com or check out the event at Johnny's Superstore at 1534 Ashland Road in Mansfield.
