NEW: "Annual Car Wash to Benefit Marines, Families and Remember Locals"
As seen in the July 14, 2017 Dana Point Times By Kristina Pritchett
This year, the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group is changing up their annual car wash to honor locals. “We’re calling it the American Heroes Car Wash,” said Terry Rifkin, president of the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group. “This car wash will honor our hometown heroes, all of the Marines who died in the (Mississippi) crash (on Monday, July 10) as well as the families that love them.”
Rifkin said they will specifically be honoring Capt. Sean Elliott, a Forward Air controller for the 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines. He was killed in the Marine Corps’ cargo plane crash in Mississippi. His parents, Cindy and John Elliott, San Juan Capistrano residents, are volunteers of the organization, Rifkin said. READ MORE
Many thanks to James Surber (center) the owner of Doheny Village Hand Car Wash for his generous support of our American Heroes and for again hosting this year's car wash on Saturday July 22 from 8am to 6pm in Capo Beach.
The day will start off with complimentary coffee from Coffee Importers in the Harbor and fresh home-baked goods. If you arrive around lunch time, you will enjoy a Barbecue Feast, compliments of Damian Collins, owner of Waterman's Harbor and StillWater in Dana Point. There will be opportunities for locals to learn more about our community and the Fighting 5th Marines by visiting a Marine Corps recruiting booth and meeting local police and fire-fighters, who will have their equipment there for display.
Marines will be visiting with the public as they towel dry the autos coming through the facility. They will be working shoulder to shoulder with the Dana Hills Football Team. Donations, in any amount, will be gratefully accepted.
