Raychele Jackson is holding a car wash raising awareness about the dangers of children and hot cars at Advance Auto Parts in Southeast Roanoke.

Jackson lost her daughter River last August. She was found in the family's van on one of the hottest days of the year.

In addition to a car wash, there will be a silent auction. Several companies have donated goods for the auction.

Jackson hopes people will get a better understanding of how a tragedy like hers can happen to anyone. The event starts at 9:30.
