Annual Car Wash Fundraiser

June 4, 2024

The 220+ members of the Colts and Colt Cadets will be practicing more than music on Saturday, June 8, as they instead become experts at washing cars! 15 simultaneous locations will be staffed with members of both corps from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM for the annual Colts Car Wash fundraiser. Since the inception of this program in 1985, over $450,000 has been raised for summer travel expenses of the Colts and Colt Cadets.

Last year, the groups washed over 750 cars and earned over $30,000 in donations and paid pledges. Proceeds from the car wash will be used for summer tour costs. Increased prices for diesel and food will be a real challenge this summer, and the car wash helps get the two groups down the road.

The car wash is free, with donations accepted. There is no minimum donation expected. The weather looks to be cooperating given the recent deluge of spring rains so be sure to stop at one of the many locations around Dubuque!

The Colts would like to extend a big THANK YOU to our host sites! The car wash would not be successful without the warm welcome we receive from these businesses.
