More than 110 CARSTAR Collision Centres across North America participated in the ninth annual Soaps It Up CAR Wash Fundraiser on Saturday, June 9, 2012. CARSTAR reached its $2 million milestone in funds this year by raising over $101,000.00 for Cystic Fibrosis Canada and local fundraising groups. There were over 70 events throughout Canada and over 40 events in the U.S., which raises funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
“We are very thankful to have Franchise Partners across the country that understand the importance of giving back to the communities they service,” said Sam Mercanti, president and CEO of CARSTAR Automotive Canada. “This is an important milestone for CARSTAR and our partners, and we are committed to continuing to support this cause until a cure has been found.”
For the past nine years CARSTAR has been a proud supporter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada and has managed to raise more than $2 million through its different fundraising initiatives.
