Car wash to benefit young hip-replacement patient

A motorcycle and car wash on Saturday will benefit a young girl who needs hip-replacement surgery.
The fundraiser will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the Heights Albertsons, 670 Main Street. There is no charge for the car wash, but donations of all sizes will be gladly accepted said Sean Evans, who is helping to organize the event.
Cookies and bottled water will be for sale. And a 50/50 tire toss will net the winner half of the proceeds from the contest.
The event is to help defray travel and food costs for  2-1/2-year-old Chloe Johnson of Billings, who will undergo hip-replacement surgery at the Shriners Children's Hospital in Spokane, Wash., at the end of August. The Shriners organization is covering the medical costs, Evans said, but money is needed to help Chloe and her family with related expenses.
The fundraiser is being put on by the Menace Motorcycle Club. Evans said club members decided to forgo their trip to the Sturgis to do the car wash. The goal is to raise $2,500, he said.
For more information, call Evans at 598-8573.
