Despite the challenges presented by the Corona virus pandemic, Motor City Wash Works has decided to move forward with their annual charity auction benefitting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This year, the “live” auction will not be held in person, however, but online (URL being finalized) starting Monday, August 24 through Friday, August 28 for a total of five days.

Since its inception, the auction has raised over $750,000 for St. Jude. Last year’s event was the most successful to date, raising $350,000.

There are three ways for vendors to participate: sponsor the event, donate equipment for auction, and donate one or more preselected merchandise items for auction. Vendors need to complete and return a participation entry form by Friday, July 31. Vendors that wish to participate and have not received and entry form should contact Jim Utterback at
