Car Wash Paws-a-Thon Fundraising

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Mister Car Wash launched their 2011 Paws-a-thon fundraising campaign on July 1 to help local Humane Society and Rescue League organizations raise money through in-store donations. Customer donations come in the form of a purchased paw in $1, $5 and $10 amounts. The paws are displayed at the local car wash during the month of July. Customers also receive exclusive savings offers on their next care wash. The 2010 campaign raised more than $48,000 for animal rescue groups.


"The event we created gives our customers, car washes, lube centers and our corporate office here in Tucson the opportunity to work together and make an impact assisting the animal shelters within our communities," said Ron Peterson, Chief Executive Officer. "We were overjoyed with not only our results, but with the feedback we received ... We knew we had to keep this new tradiion going."


Mister Car Wash is the fastest growing car wash chain in the U.S., operating 66 car washes and 24 Express Lubes in 7 states. Headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, they have 2300 employees and wash approximately 7 million vehicles annually. For more information visit
