The Mid-Atlantic Carwash Association (MCA) has announced the success of Wash to Save the Bay 2014, its second annual fundraising event for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. In an effort to educate the public on the effects of home car washing, the MCA partnered with the CBF in 2013 for a special fundraising event. Each year on a Saturday in June, participating wash locations pledge to give a certain donation for each wash sold that day.

In its first year, Wash to Save the Bay raised $7,000. This year, MCA presented CBF with a check for $10,000 during its November member meeting. CBF representatives Brian Wessner, a volunteer, and Bart Jaeger, director of development and boat captain, talked about the progress that has been made to clean up the Bay, how much more there is to do, and thanked MCA members.
