Flying Ace Express Car Wash announced the donation of $7,241.43 to The Dayton Foundation’s Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund. The donation was a result of a one-day fundraiser held on Saturday, August 17 at all six Greater Dayton Flying Ace Express Car Wash locations. During the event, Flying Ace Express donated $5 from each retail Flying Ace wash purchased and each Unlimited Wash Club Member wash upgrade. In addition, monetary donations were collected from customers onsite.
“We continue to think about all who have been affected by this tragedy and wanted as a company to bring together our staff and customers to show support for the victims and their families,” said Dan Eisenhauer, Flying Ace Express Car Wash Partner and Express Wash Concepts Vice President of Operations.
The Dayton Foundation is the regional community foundation for Greater Dayton. Since its establishment in 1921, the Foundation has managed more than 3,700 charitable funds that have provided more than $920 million in grants to nonprofits locally and nationwide. The Dayton Foundation is working with local officials to distribute the money collected from the Dayton Oregon District Tragedy Fund to families directly affected by the shooting.
