Mike's Carwash raises $3,660 for No Shave November
Nov 23, 2016
During the month of November, Mike's Carwash team members raised a grand total of $3,660 for No Shave November.
No-Shave November is a web-based, non-profit organization devoted to growing cancer awareness and raising funds to support cancer prevention, research and education. This year, No Shave November partnered with the American Cancer Society, the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer and St. Jude's Children Hospital. Each charity will receive 25% of the proceeds raised in 2016.
Each Mike's team member that participated in No Shave November, donated a minimum of $25 at the beginning of the month. In exchange for their donation, team members were allowed and encouraged to forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.
"Customers really noticed when our team members suddenly had facial hair, which gave us the perfect opportunity to raise awareness for No Shave November and their mission." says Andrew Dowden, chief operating officer of Mike's Carwash. "We are thrilled to have had so many team members participate and to have raised so much money for such a great cause. We know our team members are already looking forward to doing it again next year."
