Motor City Wash Works’ annual Live Charity Auction raises over $300k

DETROIT — This year also introduced an additional charity program to support St. Jude.

DETROIT — The Motor City Wash Works team would like to thank those who attended the 11th Annual Open House and Live Charity Auction, according to a press release.

This event continues to grow and would not be possible without the support from the company’s customers, distributors and industry partners, the release continued.

The event opened with the welcome reception at the Bistro 555 Bar and the Detroit Tigers baseball game, the release noted.

Afterwards, attendees had the chance to visit the facility and meet the Motor City Wash Works team, the release added.

Motor City Wash Works held the Live Charity Auction at the historic Gem Theatre again this year and was especially pleased with the auctioneer, Yves Rojas, and the Golden Ticket Raffle, the release continued.

Congratulations to the first prize winner of $150,000 worth of Motor City Wash Works’ equipment, Precision Car Wash Solutions, and the second prize winner of a two-year Chevrolet Corvette lease, Andrew Zamora from Racer Classic Car Washes, the release added.

The event closed with some cocktails at the After Glow Party at Level 2 roof top bar with new and old carwash friends, the release stated.

Motor City Wash Works appreciates all of the companies and individuals that participated to make this the largest Live Charity Auction and raffle that the company has hosted to date, the release noted.

To the auction winners, Motor City Wash Works’ sales team will be reaching out to you to coordinate timing and payment, the release continued.

Motor City Wash Works was once again honored to partner with St. Jude to aid in continuing the amazing work that this charity is doing to save the lives of children fighting cancer, according to the release.

No family ever receives a bill for treatment, and all care is 100% paid for by donations, the release added.

The auction met its goal to exceed last year’s donation, raising $302,000 to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the release continued.

New for 2019, the release noted, Motor City Wash Works introduced an additional program to answer its biggest question, “How can we do even more for the kids?”

As a result, the company came up with a new fundraising program, ‘Washing Cars. Fighting Cancer,’ which runs annually during the month of June, according to the release.

Participants simply register their carwashes with St. Jude and download a St. Jude splash screen onto their auto cashiers, the release noted.

Then, they supply St. Jude with sales reports and donate the proceeds prior to the charity auction, the release stated.

In this first year, Motor City Wash Works and the participating carwashes donated more than $50,000 in addition to the Open House and Charity Auction, the release added.

Altogether, the auction and program raised over $350,000 for the kids, the release concluded.

Motor City Wash Works hopes to see everyone again next year.
