Leon’s and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District will be partnering up for a community car wash fundraiser on Sat. June 8th, 2013.
An enthusiastic crew of Big Brothers Big Sisters staff, volunteers, ‘Bigs’ and ‘Littles’ will be washing cars at the Leon’s Furniture location at 1360 Marleau Avenue from 11am until 3pm.
“Leon’s contacted Big Brothers Big Sisters, wanting to do something to support local children’s agencies,” said Big Brothers Big Sisters Program Coordinator Kate Wattie.
Leon’s manager Brian Hussey knew that Big Brothers Big Sisters was a good fit for the Cornwall store to collaborate with.
“We were looking to get involved with groups in the community that are aligned with kids,” said Hussey. “We wanted to start getting more involved with the community.”
There will be no set fee for the car wash service. The local charity is asking individuals to donate whatever they wish for the car wash. All proceeds from this fundraising event will go directly towards supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District’s seven free mentoring programs.
As an added bonus, each car wash customer will receive a $25.00 Leon’s Furniture store gift certificate, courtesy of Leon’s (limit one per family). The furniture retailer is also generously providing the space and supplies to Big Brothers Big Sisters for the event.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District invites everyone in the community to drop by Leon’s Furniture on June 8th to have their vehicle shined up while helping a great local charity.
