The Cents have come up with a very unique way to fundraise. They’re hosting a FREE car wash on Sunday, September 19th at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena. How the fundraiser works is that the team goes out to get pledges from the community and people donate by pledging an amount PER VEHICLE! So for example, if someone donates 25 cents per vehicle and the Cents wash 100 vehicles, that person winds up donating 25 dollars. I love it!
Here’s the official release from Merritt Centennials.com:
