SPOKANE, Wash. - There are only a few days left for The Salvation Army's Red Kettle Campaign. Donations are low this year and because of that, Captain Kyle Smith is set to attempt another world record for bell ringing, and this year he's got some competition to do it. Miss Spokane, Kenzi Novell, is set to compete against Captain Kyle Smith for the world record attempt. Both, Smith and Novell, are at the Wal Mart Northepointe (9212 North Colton Street, Spokane) at competing doors.
Also, competing against Captain Kyle and Miss Spokane, will be Marcus Riccelli, incoming State Representative from the 3rd Legislative District. Riccelli is at the Shadle Wal-Mart (2301 W Wellesley Ave., Spokane). And Avista CEO, Scott Morris, will be helping Captain Smith, with some of his own bell ringing.
The Last Man Standing – World Record Attempt began at 5am on Thursday, December 20th.
If anyone makes the full 60 hours it would end at 5pm on Saturday, December 22nd.
The community is encouraged to come out and support Captain Smith, Miss Spokane, Marcus Riccelli and others during this long and often tedious attempt. In years past, the most difficult times for Captain Smith have been from 3am-9am.
"Conditions are expected to be cold, so please come out and keep us company, and don't forget to bring out those big bills to keep that kettle full!" ~ Captain Kyle Smith, Salvation Army
The Salvation Army Red Kettles will be at 60 area locations through December 24th - Christmas Eve. This is the Salvation Army's largest fundraiser. This year's goal is $400,000 but they are down by more than $150,000. The donations go to support all of the Salvation Army programs throughout the year.

Deputies and firefighters responded to a car crash in Spokane Valley Monday afternoon near the intersection of 4th and Blake. Deputies say the SUV was heading south on Blake when it was struck by another car, causing it to flip onto its top in a nearby yard. One person was able to get out of the SUV, but the driver had to be pulled out through the rear lift gate. Injuries appear to be minor. >>
