Ultimate Car Show worth supporting!

For the third year in a row, we are donating to Ultimate Car Show and Charity Fundraiser at J's Ultimate Hand Car Wash. This year's show will be at the car wash from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, July 25. Since 2013, J's has been holding the show to bring a nice event to Garden City, and also to raise money for charities. As in years past, we're donating a couple of oil changes (which are the best in the business, by the way!). We reprinted the news release for this year's show, which has all the details, including the purpose of the charity. This year, money raised will go toward supporting veterans programs.
