Big Brothers Big Sisters Host Car Wash Fundraiser This Saturday
Now, this is what I'm talking about - a fundraising event that 'rona can't mess with. A car wash is perfect, right? You can stay in your car the entire time, and the whole point of the event is to clean stuff - so take that 'rona!
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Indiana invites you to their 11th annual Get a Wash, Give a Future with Mike's Car Wash (1300 N. Green River Rd.), this Saturday, October 24th from 7am-9pm. During that time, Mike’s will donate half of the proceeds from all Ultimate and Works washes sold. And if that's just not enough of a donation, you can feel free to throw some more money in one of the donation buckets on site.
Get a Wash, Give a Future is bigger than just Evansville too. The car wash giveback will take place at Mike's Car Wash locations in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio - 28 car wash locations in total. Mike Dahm, President of Mike’s Carwash, says,
