PULLMAN -- The Washington State University Track and Field throwers will hold their 10th Annual Car Wash Saturday, September 24, at the Palouse Falls Brewing Company parking lot, 1335 SE Bishop Blvd. in Pullman. The 2011 event, called Suds, Soak and Grub, will collect monetary and canned food donations for the Pullman Community Action Center and Food Bank.
The Cougar discus, shot put, hammer and javelin throwers will be washing cars from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. inviting the public to donate cash or canned food in exchange for a clean vehicle.
"The Pullman residents and the surrounding communities have provided nine years of outstanding support for the Cougar throwers' car wash," WSU Associate Coach Debra Farwell said. "We are happy to be working with a local businesspeople Jeff and Linda Greene of the Palouse Falls Brewing and grateful they are providing the parking lot and water for the car wash. We look forward to assisting the Pullman Community Action Center and Food Bank with donations this year."
In the past nine years, the Cougar throwers have raised over $11,000 to donate to local community members in need. Previous car washes have raised money for paralyzed WSU football player Cory Mackay, Breast Cancer Support Group of the Palouse, individual cancer patients, a transplant recipient and the Pullman Community Action Center.
Those unable to stop by the car wash can donate by contacting Debra Farwell at 509-335-0260 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Checks should be made out to WSU Athletics and can be mailed to Debra Farwell, PO Box 641602, Pullman WA 99164-1602.
