Virginia Beach, VA - The community gathered at The Happy Shopper on Holland Road Saturday afternoon and put on a car wash to raise money for Cheryl Hughes and her family.

Hughes is recovering from colon cancer and was on the verge of eviction from her house when the community took action and helped her get results.

Organizers of the event say they raised $12,000 today.
