Two local girls who are dealing with serious medical conditions got a little extra help this weekend from the community.

Hundreds of people turned out for a benefit car wash and carnival hosted by HAPO Community Credit Union.

The proceeds will go towards Cassidy Almquist and Anne Hardin's medical bills.

Almquist was seriously injured in a fall from a rope swing at church camp and Hardin suffers from a degenerative hip condition known as Legg-Calve-Perthes disease.

The event, at the Flash Cube Building on Clearwater Avenue today, included help from various volunteers, food vendors, 949 The Wolf, and The Tri-Cities Fever.
