3/1 MARINES CAR WASH - 15 AUGUST 2009
On Saturday, 15 August 2009, a perfect summer day in Huntington Beach, Marines of 3/1 (3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division) with the assistance of the Huntington Beach adoption committee (3/1 Marines Foundation) came to town to conduct a successful car wash, raising funds to make the battalion's 2009 Birthday Ball more affordable for young Marines & Sailors.  

The Huntington Beach community adopted the battalion in 2005, and since then has supported the battalion in a number of ways, including fund raising events to support Marines/Sailors of the unit, and their families, especially while the battalion is deployed.

The citizens of Huntington Beach and the surrounding area turned out in abundance to generously support the fund raiser by donating money for car washes, purchase of bake sales items, and food from the grill manned by the Huntington Beach Fire Dept.

This was truly a community event with outstanding support coming from: Bella Terra, Simple Green, Huntington Beach Firefighters Association, Huntington Beach Public Works, Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa, Poseidon Resources, Rainbow Disposal, Beef Palace, Huntington Beach Municipal Employees Association, Huntington Beach Police Department, DJ Ray, Huntington Beach Kiwanis Club, and HB Digital Arts, all of whom donated very generously to this event.

Those interested in participating further in support of 3/1 should contact Cindy Cross, Executive Director of the 3/1 Foundation, at 714 375-3131, or by email: HB4Marines@aol.com

Col. BB,
Thank you for taking time out of your day to come and support our wonderful young Marines - as if anything could keep you away!
This album captures the mood and feeling of the day so perfectly, and I saw folks I hadn't even known were there in your photos!
As always, your work just takes my breath away and I am so grateful the 3/1 Foundation is so often the beneficiary of your generosity and talent! (Even though I know it's really not for us - it's for the Marines you love!)
Thanks, B Yar!
W.G.
