By: Gus Thomson, Journal staff writer
A car-wash fundraiser to help defray funeral costs for the family of American River drowning victim Noe Antonio Rodriguez will be held Saturday. Rodriquez, 21, was swept underwater March 25 while attempting to swim across the American River at the confluence in the canyon below Auburn. His body was recovered downstream last week. The car wash will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the Auburn resident and former Chana High School student. The site for the car wash will be Chana High School, 3775 Richardson Drive in North Auburn. For more information or to volunteer, call Nicole Laubach at (530) 885-8401.
