Car Wash A Success

June 13, 2007

The Saturday, June 8 car wash is structured as a "wash-a-thon", with pledges per car washed taken in advance by all members of the Colts and the Cadets. The Colts had a much-needed day off of rehearsal and Colts and Cadets were mixed in assignments at 18 simultaneous locations, working together and getting to know each other.

With a record number of members of the Colts and Cadets, and a record number of cars washed, it is anticipated that the car wash will raise a record amount of over $25,000. This is the one fund raising program that participation is expected of all members. The car wash is free, with donations accepted. Over $4500 was collected in free will donations, and each driver also recieved a personal invitation to attend Colts local shows.

The Colts have run the car wash annually since 1986. Over $180,000 has been raised in the past 21 years. All proceeds of the car wash are used for travel expenses for the Colts and Cadets summer programs.
