How about a wash for a wish?
For the fourth year in a row, Buffs-N-Puffs Car Wash, 6500 S. State (at I-215), will sponsor the annual "A Wash for a Wish" day Monday, Aug. 21, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Buffs-N-Puffs donates all the day's proceeds to the Make A Wish Foundation of Utah.Aside from carwashing services, an array of NBA sports memorabilia will be auctioned during an all-day silent auction. Bidders may come in at any time and make bids for items that, among other things, include basketball game shoes autographed by Utah Jazz players, autographed basketballs from the Utah Jazz and the New York Knicks and an autographed poster of Michael Jordan, said Andrew Chudd, general manager for Buffs-N-Puffs. At the end of the day, the highest bidder takes the prize.
In addition, customers may participate in a raffle that offers 35 prizes, including two roundtrip plane tickets to anywhere in the United States, a strand of pearls and gift certificates. All the prizes have been donated, and all the money raised will be donated to MAW.
Last year, the event raised $11,956. In three years, the event has raised nearly $20,000 for MAW.
"We have set a $15,000-plus goal this year . . . ," said Christine Sharer, MAW executive director.
