One Day event nets $111,555 Donation
(Indianapolis, IN) — Hosting our biggest Mike’s Mentors Kids event to date, Mike’s Carwash recently contributed $111,555 to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
The money was raised during the annual fundraiser, where half the proceeds of every Works wash, a $15 value, was donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters. The event took place at 40 Mike’s Carwash locations, supporting 11 different Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies in Indiana and Ohio.
Mike’s donations will help offset the cost of programming for one-to-one youth mentoring in the communities where the fundraisers were held.
“We are very appreciative of the work that Big Brothers Big Sisters accomplishes. We are committed to their mission of bringing positive change to young people,” said Mike’s CEO Bill Dahm. “We’re very excited that we are able to donate nearly $20,000 more than 2012, and we are extremely grateful to our customers who helped make it happen.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters provides youth with enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that focus on three targeted areas related to high school graduation and lifelong success: avoidance of risky behaviors, socio-emotional competency, and educational success.
