SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Despite the weather, it was a night of fun, laughter, and hats, all for a good cause.

Tuesday night was the 9th annual "Laugh Your Hat Off" event at "Bev's On The River."

The event included a dinner, wine tasting, auction, and hat awards for "funniest" and "most elegant."

All proceeds from the "fun"raiser go to the Community Action Agency's Crossroads Shelter.

The shelter provides housing and support services to homeless women and children for up to two years.

"It's amazing for Sioux City to have such a need for homeless women and children, and thank goodness we have, we can take care of some of that need," said Jenny Herrick, Committee Member.

The shelter needs to raise over $40,000 this year due to sequestration cuts in Washington. KTIV's Sarah TeSlaa was the emcee for the event.
