KPIC-KCD Car wash to feature more that just scrubbing bubbles

ROSEBURG, Ore. -- KPIC and KCD Dance Studio are teaming up this weekend to help fight cancer, and this year, the annual event is going to feature more than just a car wash.

The two companies are hosting their annual Relay for Life car wash this Saturday in Roseburg.

Relay Event Chair Karen Collier explained to KPIC News about her personal connection to the disease. "I lost my younger brother to cancer when he was 25, to colon cancer," she said. "I am also a cancer survivor. and we feel the need to get rid of it, anyway possible, and if having a car wash helps, then that's what we're going to do."

The car wash will take place at the Abby's Pizza parking lot on Diamond Lake Boulevard and will last from from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.

There will be a classic car show at the Color Craft parking lot, as well as live music. Registration for the car show begins at 8:00 a.m., with a donation entry fee.

The band Hemlock Lane will be playing at 5:00 p.m., and Flashbak goes on at 8:00 p.m.
