Starting Friday, August 4th, through Sunday, August 6th, Epic Shine Car Wash is working with local community partners like ICCU & LEPCO to raise money for Make-A-Wish® Idaho. We’re proud to have been helping such an amazing cause for over five years. Throughout the years, we’ve raised over $70,000 to help grant these special wishes.
Make-A-Wish® Idaho’s mission is to grant life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses. The organization’s goal is to grant every eligible wish and has granted nearly 1,700 wishes since the chapter was founded, including wishes for Idaho children like Liam.
Liam is a 13-year-old boy who loves the outdoors and adventurous activities, like camping and fishing – especially for crawdads. He hopes to permanently live in a small home in the woods when he gets older.
Liam was diagnosed with a blood disease and needed a bone marrow transplant. He spent 46 days in the hospital and 100 days in Salt Lake City before he could return home to Idaho. Despite the countless needle pokes, blood draws, and clinical appointments, Liam’s humor, and positive attitude inspired his nurses and doctors.
Now, we’re helping grant wishes like Liam’s to go to Hawaii and enjoy the island’s nature and beauty. He looks forward to the warm weather and playing in the water. His adventurous side can’t wait to try some parasailing, horseback riding, and ziplining over the jungle canopy.
All Epic Shine locations will participate in the fundraising event from August 4th through the 6th. Donations enter you in a daily raffle for a chance to win Protect washes with one Grand Prize winner getting six months of free unlimited washes. If you can’t make the event, you can make online donations here.
Let’s make this year another one of EPIC donations.
Update: With your help, we were able to raise $15,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation! Thanks to everyone who made this event a success. See you next year!
