 Amplify Car Wash Advisors, a national mergers and acquisitions and capital advisory firm, presented a $100,000 donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® at The Car Wash Show 2022, hosted by the International Carwash Association in Nashville in May. At the event, the advisory firm announced its corporate partnership with St. Jude and delivered on its pledge of a minimum donation of $100,000 in 2022. 

Paul Fazio, CEO of  Sonny’s, The Car Wash Factory, matched the St. Jude donation, bringing the total to $200,000. “When Bill told me of Amplify Car Wash Advisors’ plans to support St. Jude, I was incredibly moved, and felt this encounter did not happen by chance,” said Fazio. “My wife and I have family with deep roots to this great organization for decades through ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude. I am thrilled to now be in a position to give in a significant way.” 

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened 60 years ago.

Amplify Car Wash Advisors partner Bill Martin shared that he and his business partner Jeff Pavone decided to make a commitment to St. Jude after attending the Motor City Wash Works annual charity event supporting St. Jude. 

“Bill and I are so fortunate to be part of the car wash industry and we’ve made it a mission of our firm to give back. Paul’s matching $100,000 donation and Motor City’s ongoing support of St. Jude is a testament to how truly blessed we are to be part of such an amazing community,” said Pavone.
