Mike's Carwash donated $7,683.13 to Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House as a result of its Wash for Hope event on January 27-28.
During the two-day fundraiser, Mike's five Fort Wayne locations offered the Ultimate Wash at a discounted price and for every Ultimate purchased, donated $1 back to Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House. Mike's Fort Wayne locations also accepted monetary donations.
"Our staff and volunteers had an amazing experience partnering with Mike's Carwash last Saturday. Their generosity and that of their customers was truly humbling. These funds will help us provide respite to our families when respite is needed most," said Anthony Gritzmaker, executive director of Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House.
The mission of Mad Anthonys Children's Hope House is to offer temporary, minimal-cost lodging to parents and families of children receiving medical care away from home; to provide families with a place of comfort, hope and emotional support; to serve families regardless of race, gender, religious or political affiliation; and never turn away any family due to inability to pay.
"A huge thank you to all of our Fort Wayne customers that supported our Wash for Hope fundraiser and to our team members for their hard work during the event," said Ty Dubay, chief operating officer of Mike's Carwash. "We are thrilled to have donated over $7,000 to such a deserving organization."
