LYNNWOOD -- Volunteers raised about $500 during a car and dog wash and silent auction that was held this past weekend for the Lynnwood police canine unit.
Employees at Helping Hands Veterinary Clinic spent Sunday hosting the fundraiser outside the clinic 18415 33rd Avenue W., Suite R. It was the second year in a row that the business hosted the car and dog wash for the police department.
The office wanted to do a fundraiser as part of a day of service in honor of Sept. 11, said David Concepcion, practice manager for Helping Hands.
"Since we're a veterinary clinic, we wanted to do something for the canine units," Concepcion said.
Police dog handlers and their dogs were also on hand on Sunday. Concepcion said that he wrote to about 100 musicians and other artists asking for donations for the silent auction. Several sent pictures and other items for including the classic rock band Heart, which is from Seattle and sent a photograph.
Concepcion said they were pleased with the turnout and the effort by the group.
"We raised more money than we did last year," Concepcion said. "It was great and we're going to continue to grow it every year."
