      Fundraiser to support local soldiers

      A car wash and barbecue will be held Saturday, July 6 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to support the local men and women in the military.

      The event will be held at the Superior Express Care and Wash in Marquette.

      With a $10 donation, a car wash, food and a chance to win raffle prizes will be offered. Soldiers will also be volunteering their time to help wash cars and cook food.

      The money raised will benefit the 652nd Engineering Company and the 107th Engineer Battalion.

      "It came to my attention that they need funds raised for them, so it became a very simple thing for me to say, Well, let's just do something really simple like a car wash and try to raise a little money so those days can be a little more interesting and a little more fun for all the families involved," said Anna Dravland, organizer.

      Superior Express Care and Wash of Marquette will also donate $10 for those willing to get an oil change.
