Motor City Wash Works held its seventh annual Open House in early July, hosting customers and industry partners at its Michigan facilities.

Each year, the company avails itself of this opportunity to generate contributions to a favorite charity: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Together with its guests, the company was able to raise nearly double the $10,000 original goal, making possible a donation of $18,000 to the hospital.

According to a St. Jude representative, a donation that size enables the hospital to fund nearly a full day of treatment for a patient (one full CT scan, one day of chemotherapy, two hours of physical therapy, two days of oxygen, three blood-cell transfusions, one chest x-ray, and two complete blood tests). Despite the high cost of these treatments, no St. Jude family ever receives a bill.

Motor City Wash Works is also a sponsor of the 2015 Ann Arbor St. Jude Run/Walk to End Childhood Cancer. The event takes place on Saturday, September 26 and has already raised over $60,000.00 for the kids. Residents can register to run/walk at
