Car wash raises funds for family who lost home in Monett

Updated:

A group comes together to wash cars despite Saturday's stormy weather to help a family that lost their home in a fire.

The Barry County Drug Court Alumni Program washed dozens of cars from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in an Aaron's parking lot in Monett, Missouri.

All proceeds from the event went to Billy Mahurin a father of three who lost his home in a fire last month.

Officials say this is the first of many events the Drug Court Alumni Group hopes to host to help the community.

"That's what our alumni group does, we want to get out there and help the community a little bit to show other addicts that to give back all of the support they gave to us, and while we've been in drug court because it is a community thing," says Cristy Koehler, the President of the Barry County Drug Court Alumni.

From Walmart to Lowe's, several business supplied the group with towels, soap and water for the event.
