Following a successful holiday event that raised more than $6,500 for the Surrey Christmas Bureau, a South Surrey car-wash business is bringing back its Grand Splash Fundraiser to help out another community-service agency.

This weekend (May 17-20), Express Auto Wash will collect donations in exchange for its Platinum-level car washes, with all proceeds to benefit Family Services of Greater Vancouver (FSGV).

The non-profit helps youth, families, children and other vulnerable individuals who have been impacted by homelessness, domestic violence or other trauma create positive change in their lives.

All three Lower Mainland Express locations are participating.

“In partnering with FSGV, Express Auto Wash seeks to provide an opportunity for the Wash staff to do good in the community by taking care of customers, while raising funds to lend a hand to families in need,” a poster for the event explains.

The event builds on a 10-day February 2023 fundraiser for FSGV, held at Express’s Boundary location (3680 East Fourth Ave.), that raised more than $18,000.

In South Surrey, the business is located at 2337 King George Blvd. The third location is in Coquitlam, at 1035 Lougheed Hwy.

The facility is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
