Wash holds crowded fundraiser for humane society

EXETER, PA — Over 700 motorists had their cars washed in support of a local animal humane society.

EXETER, PA — Lines of cars piled up at Scott’s Car Wash and Lube Facilities in Exeter Township and Kenhorst last weekend in support of the Humane Society of Berks County, a local animal protection group.

The Sept. 16 story from Reading Eagle stated that motorists were able to have their car washed for the discounted price of $8; all of which was donated to the animal society. Over $20,000 has been raised since the “Wash for the Animals” fundraiser began seven years ago.

“We had a great turnout and the weather was with us,” Owner Scott Egolf said in the story. “It allows me to express my love of animals and also contribute to an organization that I love.”

In addition to a discounted price, motorists received a free t-shirt, goodie bags and a chance to win free carwashes for an entire year. Moe’s Southwest Grill provided free burritos, and Dairy Queen gave away free ice cream.

The Wash for Animals is a lead-in to the society’s largest fundraiser, the 35th Walk for the Animals and Walktoberfest. The walk drew 4,000 participants last year and raised an incredible $130,000. This year’s goal is $135,000.
