GARRISON, N.D. (AP) — Organizers of an annual beach party fund-raiser in Garrison say this year's proceeds will go to Minot flood victims.

The event was held Saturday at Fort Stevenson State Park. Officials say the party typically raises up to $4,000 for selected groups.

Past events have paid for projects such as a city bandstand, city taxi, playground equipment and ball washers at the golf course.

One of the party-goers, Minot's Vanessa Latendresse, tells the Minot Daily News (http://bit.ly/qATAci) that she and her three children needed a break from the camper that is their temporary home.

Saturday's event featured games for children, a dunking booth, music and food.
