Charity car wash on July 18

A local business is offering area residents a chance to meet an NHL star, get their vehicle washed and support a great cause – all in one day.

On July 18, from 9am to 2pm, Krown Rust Control on Main Street in Palmerston is operating a charity car wash. The event is part of Krown’s second annual company-wide Wash for a Wish event.

For $10 participants will receive a hand car wash at any Krown Rust Control location, with 100% of proceeds going to the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.

At the Krown in Palmerston Pittsburgh Penguins NHL star Nick Spaling, a Drayton native, will be greeting visitors.

Members of the Palmerston Marlins Squirts ball team will be washing cars and local Krown owners Fred and Cheryl Donkersgoed will donate $10 for each vehicle washed to the team.
