Soaping It Up: CARSTAR Hamilton Midtown hosts charity car wash for Cystic Fibrosis Canada

Hamilton, Ontario — On Friday, June 14, CARSTAR Hamilton Midtown held its 23rd annual Soapss It Up car wash in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada.

According to a recent press release, the event is “a time-honoured tradition for CARSTAR Hamilton Midtown [where] the team eagerly gathers every summer to wash cars for the community, raising valuable funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.”

This year’s car wash featured a special appearance on CHCH Morning Live with reporter Emily Vukovic, who stopped by to showcase the event and even wash some cars.

The team also had a BBQ, cookies for sale, the Toronto Raptor’s mascot making an appearance, along with a raffle to win a Toronto Raptors jersey.

The press release further noted that “CARSTAR began fundraising for cystic fibrosis in Canada over 25 years ago, when a franchise partner’s granddaughter received a cystic fibrosis diagnosis. Since then, the CARSTAR commitment to its charity of choice has only grown, as have the funds raised. Passing the $5 million threshold for funds raised for Cystic Fibrosis Canada this year, CARSTAR looks to continue accelerating its fundraising momentum across North America this summer through its Shine Season.”

“We’ve raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through the past two decades for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and it’s because our team has such a commitment to this cause and giving back to the community,” says Peter Chavez, President and COO, CARSTAR LC Group. “Sharon always makes her delicious cookies for the occasion, Blake helps set up the facility to ensure we’re ready to go and it’s just a fun day for our whole CARSTAR family.”

“Having a service mindset is a founding value of CARSTAR and it’s something that we’ll never lose because of our incredible franchise partners,” said David Foster, VP of development and operations. “We’re the best in the industry for a reason, our owners care about the communities they serve. Not only do they provide best-in-class collision repairs, but we have fun at our collision centres and give back to the communities we serve, something demonstrated really well at CARSTAR Hamilton Midtown with their incredible team fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.”
