      Car wash for veterans in Marquette

      The second annual Vets Car Wash kicked off Saturday at the Superior Express Care and Wash in Marquette.

      The event"s mission is to raise funds to support family activities and programs for the two active military units in the U.P.; The 107th and the 652nd.

      This is something event staff say is a worthwhile cause at any time, but especially around this time of year.

      "I myself have three siblings in the military as well as my boyfriend. So, I know how important it is when you have time with your family to really be able to enjoy it. And I...I can't think of anything better to support, especially around 4th of July." said event coordinator Anna Dravland.

      Car washes at the event were $10 as a donation, with $10 donated per oil change as well.
