Volkswagen of Billings will hold their third major March of Dimes fund-raising event Saturday.

The March of Dimes Organization helps mothers have full-term pregnancies and researches the problem that threaten the health of babies. Supporters said it's a fun way to help families in need.

"It feels good to be a part of the March of Dimes. We are helping babies live stronger healthier lives. Not only are we helping babies, but we're helping families, and it's for the Montana Chapter. So, we're helping local families, and it feels really good, and it's very special for us to be a part of it," Porrazzo said.

Porrazzo said the dealership hopes to raise $40,000 for March of Dimes by the end of the year.
