The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

On Saturday, June 30, the Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group (DPSG) Car Wash will be held at Doheny Village Hand Car Wash (DVHCW) from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.

The 5th Marines are currently deployed to the Middle East for a nine-month tour. Proceeds from the annual car wash, one of the major fundraisers held by the DPSG, will be used to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, Marines, Sailors and families of the 5th Marine Regiment, especially while their loved ones are far away.

The DVHCW is owned by James Surber, who has offered his car wash services for the cost of a donation. All the proceeds will go to the DPSG. Look for the “Heroes Car Wash” signs along the route.

All refreshments are complimentary, including coffee and fresh home-baked goods courtesy of The Coffee Importers and a barbecue lunch courtesy of Waterman’s Harbor and StillWater Spirits and Sounds. There will be opportunities for locals to learn more about our community and the 5th Marines by visiting a Marine Corps recruiting booth and meeting local police and fire fighters, who will have their equipment there for display.

Doheny Village Hand Car Wash is located at 34241 Doheny Park Rd., Capistrano Beach, across the street from the Pepi’s Sports Bar and Grill.

Local residents who are unable to participate are welcome to support the cause with a tax-exempt donation by visiting,
