I W Marks store owners Daniel and Brad Marks, with wives Susan Marks and Joanna Hartland Marks, put together a marvelous silent auction to honor the memory of fallen policeman Jimmie DeVeril Norman and benefit his family. Additional support came from benevolent individuals and businesses including Alan Helfman, Gigi’s Asian Bistro and Izkali Tequila, who all contributed to the silent auction. Of course, I W Marks added many sparkling items to the mix, and by evening’s end, $13,000 had been raised, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Norman family. Celebrating and supporting a hero: Hillary and Daniel Norman, Dallas Norman, Randy Dobbs, Bellaire Chief of Police Byron Holloway, Jeffrey Cotton, Randy McKinney, Cricket and Daniel DeWalch, and Tracey Cleckler.
