CRESTVIEW — Hearing that it meant an extra contribution, members of the all-girl Destiny show choir burst into a harmonious rendition of Colbie Caillat’s "Brighter Than the Sun" as they washed a patron's car Saturday morning.

Meanwhile, across town, more chorus members and parent volunteers hawked baked goods and hotdogs during the Crestview Sears' 15th anniversary celebration for the same cause.

The car wash and food sales netted the 130-voice, state-recognized Crestview High School chorus $350 toward expenses unfunded by the Okaloosa County School District — namely transportation to out-of-town performances and competitions.

Though the morning was too cool for soaking each other with water hoses as they washed cars, it didn't preclude friendly towel snaps, adeptly wielded by sophomore Johnathan Berry.

It didn’t take much for Tommy Hill to sell hotdogs at the store.

"It gets me out of the house,” he said.

As she bought a hotdog, Marty Lane, a proud chorus mom, said she supports her sophomore daughter’s passion.
