ST GEORGE – Car Guys Care is revving up a fundraising effort to benefit four families that lost their homes to fire Saturday afternoon.
Just after 1 p.m. Saturday fire spread through homes in the Grandview Mobile Home Park in St. George. Though St. George City Fire Department battled the blaze, the wind and the closeness of the structures presented a challenge. In the end four mobile homes were destroyed by fire or compromised by water damage from the fire suppression.
Now Car Guys Care, a group of people who collect and have special interest in cars and doing good for the community, is rallying sponsors and donors to assist the American Red Cross in helping the community prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters big and small – people such as the victims of Saturday’s fire.
Car Guys Care hosted a fundraiser Wednesday morning at Ricardos on Bluff Street in St. George through which they raised $200-$300 for the families.
The group is putting on two more events this week: Cruise-in at Sunset Plaza, at the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Bluff Street in St. George, from 6-9 p.m.; and Trippin’ at Saturday at Freddy’s Steakburger and Frozen Custard from 6-9 p.m. In the case of Saturday’s event at Freddy’s, if patrons present to Freddy’s a particular coupon, obtained by emailing Shane at [email protected], 15 percent of their paid bill will go to Car Guys Care’s fundraiser for the Red Cross.
