At the Bridge Street Car Wash in Princeton, Tuesdays are heart days for the month of February.
All funds collected from the car wash on Tuesdays will go directly to B.C. Children’s Hospital’s heart department.
Tanya and Al Lawes, owners of Bridge Street Car Wash are quite familiar with B.C. Children’s Hospital.
When their now five year old daughter Layna was born, they were informed that she had serious issues with her heart.
Layna underwent three surgeries and finally the implant of a pacemaker which she will have for the rest of her life.
As she grows, the pacemaker will have to be moved and batteries replaced. Layna and her parents make a trip to the hospital a minimum of twice a year.
The Lawes family are grateful for the care Layna received and continues to receive at B.C. Children’s Hospital. In order to “give back to those that helped us,” Tanya and Al take the Tuesday proceeds during ‘heart month’ February, and give back to B.C. Children’s Hospital.
If you wish to assist the Lawes family with their annual fundraiser, visit the Bridge Street Car Wash on Tuesdays. Clean up your vehicle while helping out a heart or two.
