The Washington Explosion 18s will hold several fundraisers over the next week to raise money to offset travel costs for the team's appearance at the ASA 18A National Tournament scheduled for Aug. 1-8 in Hemet, Calif.
Among the events is a skills clinic for girls ages 8 and up scheduled 5-8 p.m. on July 28-29 at Columbia Playfield in Richland.
Registration fee is $40 per player. Write to EMERYCL1@aol.com for clinic details.
There also will be a cash-donation car wash from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday at Albertsons on Gage and Keene in Richland.
