Carstar participates in North America's largest car wash

MILFORD, OH (FOX19) -

Carstar auto body repair is participating in the largest North American car wash in history this weekend.

Car washes will take place at more than 140 locations across the U.S. and Canada as part of North America's largest car wash event. In 2009, CARSTAR set the Guinness World Record by washing more than 4,000 vehicles during an eight-hour period at all of the participating locations.  For 2011, they will be attempting to break their own record and set a new milestone. 

Carstar Collision Care of Milford will be the national host for the record-breaking event, which takes place on June 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Milford location is at 731 SR 28.

The event will benefit theCystic Fibrosis in Canada and the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the U.S., as well as the Cincinnati chapter of the Arthritis Foundation.  More than 140 CARSTAR stores throughout both countries are expected to participate in the one-day event. 

Carstar will need to beat its own record from last year by washing more than 4,000 vehicles at all of the participating locations.  Local scouting troops, charity volunteers and CARSTAR staff will be on hand to wash the vehicles.                 

Tickets are being sold at all participating CARSTAR stores for $10, with 100 percent of the ticket purchase benefiting the selected charities.
