Fundraisers to help Arnold family

Local residents are coming together to help raise money for the family of Garrett Arnold, a local pastor who suffered a serious spinal injury last month that resulted in paralysis of his body below the waist.

A benefit concert, dance and silent auction is set for Friday, Sept. 7 at the CPO Club Ballroom in Oak Harbor. The auction begins at 6:30 p.m. Coupeville band Johnny Bulldog, which is led by former Creedence Clearwater Revival band member John Tristao, performs at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 at Bayleaf, Branch Business Services, Ciao, Living Hope Church and Peoples Bank.

All proceeds go toward Arnold’s health expenses.

Also planned is a car wash set for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8 at Windermere Real Estate, 5 S. Main St., Coupeville.

Donations to help the family also can be made to an account at any Peoples Bank.
