Mike's Carwash donated a check for $17,318.32 to the Marvin Lewis Community Fund after the final Bengals game of the season against the Baltimore Ravens at Paul Brown Stadium.
The donation was a result of all the proceeds from Mike's "2 Sacks to Save" promotion during the Bengals 2016/2017 season. Mike's pledged to donate $1 to the Marvin Lewis Community Fund for each Ultimate Wash purchased the day after the Bengals recorded 2 or more sacks in a game. The Bengals recorded 2+ sacks in nine of out the 16 games played this season.
"Thank you to Mike's Carwash for the generous donation to the Marvin Lewis Community Fund," said Bengals Head Coach, Marvin Lewis. "MLCF could not make the impact it has in the community without our partners who help us continue our work throughout the year."
The Marvin Lewis Community Fund's mission is to empower youth education throughout Greater Cincinnati. What began as a small organization in 2005, has grown into a non profit that gives back through its own core outreach programs and community initiatives.
"We were absolutely thrilled to partner with the Cincinnati Bengals this year and to become the official carwash of the team," says Greg Ries, executive president of Mike's Carwash. "The cherry on top of all the excitement was then partnering with the Marvin Lewis Community Fund. Giving back to the community is a huge part of the Mike's culture and thanks to the Bengals Defense activating our promotion nine times throughout the season, we were able to make a significant donation to such an amazing organization."
"The donation from Mike's Carwash helps to make a real difference for the young people in our area," says Barbara Dundee, executive director of the Marvin Lewis Community Fund. "We appreciate their support that will help us touch the lives of students in this community that we all care about."
