Mike's Carwash partners with Big Brothers, Big Sisters for charity car wash day

Mike's Carwash will partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters for the eighth year in a row to raise money for their youth mentoring programs in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.

On Saturday, May 13, the company will donate half the proceeds of all Ultimate and Works washes sold throughout the day. There will also be donation buckets on site at all locations to allow customers the opportunity to contribute a personal donation, if they desire to do so. All proceeds and donations will benefit eight local Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters.

The fundraiser will be held from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. at all 19 Mike's Carwash locations. Bigs and Littles, media personalities, radio stations and other special guests will be on site with free food samples and coupons throughout the day at all Mike's Carwash locations.

"We are so appreciative of all of our team members, customers, media partners and other local businesses that support the event and allow us to continue this fundraiser year after year," says Mike Dahm, president of Mike's Carwash. "This day is all about raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters and supporting their mission of providing children facing adversity with strong relationships and positive change. We are praying for good weather and encourage everyone to come get a wash and give a future."
