A new local non-profit aimed at helping troubled youth raises $1,800 at its first fundraising event.
"Cushions'" first annual Treasure Hunt took place Saturday.
Chris Snapp, whose 17-year-old son Joshua Snapp was shot and killed by two friends in the desert last summer, started the non-profit as a way to give kids something to do in order to stay out of trouble.
Nearly 40 people showed up to the treasure hunt.
The purpose of the event was to show families community resources available to them in a time of need.
All the proceeds will go toward activities for kids and finding a facility to run the program in.
