The Prince George RCMP, the BC Sheriffs Service and Prince George Fire/Rescue, will be holding a car wash to raise money for Special Olympics BC Saturday.
Members of these three public safety organizations will be on hand this Saturday to wash vehicles for a minimum donation of $10.
In addition, 50/50 raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each. With only 2,000 tickets being sold, the maximum prize to be awarded is $5,000.
Proceeds of the event will be added to moneys raised for the upcoming Law Enforcement Torch Run to be held June 6 at the Prince George RCMP Detachment. All of the money raised at that event will be donated to Special Olympics BC to support Prince George area athletes.
“This is such a great cause, these athletes put all their heart into their respective sports and we are happy to help them to have that opportunity,” said Cpl. Craig Douglass, spokesperson for the Prince George RCMP. “And if that isn’t a good enough reason to get your car washed, how often do you get a sheriff, fire fighter or police officer washing your car?”
The car wash will be Saturday, May 20, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Canadian Tire parking lot.
The RCMP officially supports two charities each year, the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics and Cops for Cancer supporting the Canadian Cancer Society.
