Unfortunately this story is a sad one, but Echo Park neighbors are coming together out of love tomorrow to raise money for resident Rebecca Zamarripa, who lost her battle with cancer on July 1, just three days before her 39th birthday. Fellow Echo Parkian Becca Dorman wrote about her beloved neighbor in an Echo Park Patch article last week before Zamarripa passed away, calling on the neighborhood to help support the family on Saturday, July 9 at an all-day car wash.

The car wash is still on to help support the family and her children with the financial burden for her treatment. If you’re like me and have been neglecting your car for quite some time now, this is the perfect excuse and the perfect place to spend your dollars. They’ll also be selling an assortment of delicious homemade baked goods.

The car wash starts at 8:00 a.m. at El Centro del Pueblo, located at 1157 Lemoyne St. We haven’t confirmed if there is a suggested minimum donation or not, but there’s certainly no maximum! If you can’t make it tomorrow, there will be another car was at Elysian Heights Elementary School on Saturday, July 16, 2011.

You can also drop off some bills in the many donation jars around Echo Park, including Allston Yacht Club.

Checks can be made out to Ronald C. Tafoya and sent care of El Centro del Pueblo, 1157 Lemoyne St., Los Angeles, CA 90026.
