The ARK Announces the Recipients of the

2015 Coy Pullara Unsung Hero Award

1896730 825886620812733 4525400099202806318 n 

Ann and Bob Beadel are shown here with their 2015 Coy Pullara Unsung Hero Award.  The award is given each year to a person or persons who have furthered the example that Coy Pullara set in supporting the ARK Domestic Violence Shelter. The couple accepted the award during the "Romancing the Stars" Dinner Dance held on February 14th.


Brownwood, Texas – February 18, 2015 -  The recipients for this year's Coy Pullara Unsung Hero Award were Bob and Ann Beadel during the recent "Romancing the Stars " Dinner Dance on February 14. The couple were given a standing ovation, after the presentation of the ward.  Lowell Moore gave a short biographical sketch of the many positive traits of the pair, whom he has known for decades.  Their compassion, support and dedication to the The ARK Domestic Violence Shelter was noted in Moore's speech.

The "Romancing the Stars" Dinner Dance was a tremendous success. From the tuxedo napkins to the chandelier, the Home Economics building at the Brown County Youth Fairgrounds was transformed into a ballroom worthy of any Hollywood event.  Auctioneer Rex Tackett made the live auction come alive, with trips to New York and New Orleans competitively bid on, and an especially lively bidding session was conducted for the guitar autographed by country legend George Strait.   It was truly a magical evening.

The ARK Domestic Violence Shelter helps victims of domestic violence and/or sexual abuse and their families in Brown, Coleman and Comanche Counties. The phone number to call for help is 325-643-2699.  For more information about the ARK Shelter, you can go online to
