Bridge Street Car Wash owner Tanya Lawes is donating all the money the car wash makes on Tuesdays in February to BC Children’s Hospital.
Having a child in need of medical attention hits close to home for Lawes.
Her four-year-old daughter Layna was diagnosed with a heart problem as soon as she was born.
She spent a lot of time in-and-out of hospitals and now has a pacemaker.
But Layna is like any other young child, Lawes said.
“We have her in skating and she loves preschool.”
Last year, Lawes raised $1,150, up from $750 the year before. Her goal is to exceed that amount this year. She will also be dropping by businesses in Princeton to wash people’s cars for a donation.
“The amount donated has gone up each year – I’m hoping to do even better now.”
