Bombshellz raises cash for veterans coalition

Bombshellz Espresso of Richland helped raise more than $500 for the Columbia Basin Veterans Coalition last week.

The coffee shop at 96 Wellsian Way donated $1 from every cup sold on Nov. 4, along with tips and any additional donations from customers, said owner Victor Webley.

Webley, who served in the Marine Corps, said they decided to celebrate their one-year anniversary of opening with the fundraiser and hope to make it an annual event.

"Even as a small business, we still want to do our part and take care of the ones who have risked it all for us," he said.
