MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - The viral red Jeep that was stuck on Myrtle Beach during Hurricane Dorian is going on tour to raise money for hurricane victims, WPDE reported.
The owners of the Jeep, Brittany and Nick Feliciano, said they were not happy when they saw that their car got destroyed after being stranded on the beach.
"I'm definitely not glad it happened, but we're trying to make the best out of the situation," Brittany Feliciano said.
The Jeep’s tour started Saturday at a car wash in North Myrtle Beach, where a portion of the business’s proceeds will go toward a GoFundMe for Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas.
The Felicianos said once the Jeep arrived at the car wash, people wanted to take pictures of the red Jeep.
"This Jeep is going to bring a lot of money through Nick and his wife, Brittany. They're going to do amazing things. I can just tell what kind of people they are," said Billy Sainato, the owner of Sparkle Car Wash.
The Jeep is also set to be at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in October.
