WILMINGTON — The #HoldenStrong campaign is going strong as a silent auction is underway and the Friday fundraiser approaches at local businesses.
Individuals and businesses have been donating items including gift baskets for a silent auction hosted by Wilmington Auto Center Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM on Rombach Ave. Bidding ends at 6 p.m. Friday.
The movement is to raise funds for Jessica Holden and family; Jessica was seriously injured when, while shopping at CVS on Aug. 5, an SUV crashed into the store.
A GoFundMe page is also set up at https://bit.ly/3aaUJiZ for anyone who would like to donate.
