The Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association (KSYSA) U13 Girls enjoyed the sunshine and helped wash a few muddy cars this weekend to support their sport season.

“It was a combination of a car wash, bake sale and bottle drive and we raised almost $600,” said coordinator Aerin Guy, “everything was by donation and people were really generous.”

Guy said the money will go a long way to helping the club with attire and travel expenses for the season.

“We have tournaments in Nelson, Cranbrook and Revelestoke planned so far and that includes provincials coming up as well. There is lots of traveling  for the girls this summer. To play on a rep team like this does get expensive so that money really helps kids who otherwise might not be able to go.”

Guy said the support they received was outstanding. There were even a few early birds showing up to the car wash, which she thought was great, if uncommon.

The girls and Guy would like to thank Bryan Deadmarsh and Rossland Collision —  without them this fundraiser would not have been possible.
