The Southern Nevada Devil Pups held a fundraiser Saturday to send teens to a leadership camp.

The car wash was held at VFW Post 3848 in Henderson. They raised $9,736 toward sending 35 teens to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton for the 10-day Devil Pups Leadership Camp.

"They sleep in barracks, eat in the mess hall and they learn leadership skills," said Marie Tomao, of the Youth Leadership Authority. "They learn to be kind to one another .. motivational speeches, how to not get involved with gangs and drugs. How to make good decisions and how to respect the United States of America."

The Devil Pups spent the past 7 weeks training at Sunset Park with help from volunteers and the Marines.
