Tidal Wave Auto Spa held its 14th annual Charity Day on Sept. 16., noted a press release.
During this one-day event, the company donated 100% of its network’s proceeds to charitable organizations.
The company says it raised close to $350,000 across Tidal Wave’s locations, bringing the total amount raised over the event’s 14-year history to more than $1,000,000.
Each Tidal Wave location selects a local charity or non-profit group to receive 50% of its daily proceeds.
The company donates the other 50% to the company’s corporate partner Annandale Village, an award-winning non-profit organization dedicated to providing progressive life assistance to adults with developmental disabilities. All according to Tidal Wave.
Tidal Wave Auto Spa founders Scott and Hope Blackstock say they have a child with special needs.
As a result, the company has focused much of its charitable-giving efforts on supporting organizations that serve adults and children with special needs since its founding.
