Along with the help of many people in the community, the girls have set up a fundraising booth located on the corner of Columbus and Alta Vista in Bakersfield.

A nonprofit that has been well known in Bakersfield since the early 1980s, the team is comprised of girls ages 13 and 14.

The team will be selling fireworks until July 4 at midnight.
