PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

A lot of times when you see fundraiser car washes, theyre usually high school students raising money for a club or a sports team.

This one, however, is to benefit the family of Sergey Pivovarnik, who drowned almost a week ago at Veterans Memorial Park in Parma.
"I think he would find this car wash great because he would want us to help his family at a time like this," stated Shaden Ramos, a classmate of Pivovarnik on Sunday afternoon.


Pivovarniks friends from school and from the Local Tavern in Parma volunteered to put this on. It is all for the family of Sergey who was just 16-years-old. A life cut way too short and thats why many made a donation and got a car wash Sunday afternoon.

The volunteers report that they raised $3,760 for Pivovarnik's family. They would also like to thank Autzone and Colozza's Bakery for their help. 

According to a police report, Pivovarnik and his Parma football teammates went to the pond at Veterans Memorial Park. Pivovarniks friends said that he accepted a $20 bet to swim across the pond despite his inability to swim. He never made it.

"He was a sweetheart. He always made everybody laugh. There was never a time he was upset. He always had a smile on his face,
said Makayla Taylor, a friend of Pivovarnik.
