Last year, our Oregon and southwest Washington centers raised more than $45,000. It was such an incredible success that we decided to expand it to all of our centers this year.
Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 15, 2011
All Oil Can Henry’s automotive technicians will don pink hats and bowties July 16 – 23, 2011, in support of the company’s Make a Change for the Cure™ fundraiser, benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure and its mission to save lives and end breast cancer forever. The oil change and automotive maintenance company, which operates 87 centers in six Western states, has pledged to raise at least $75,000 but hopes to raise more.
Oil Can Henry's will donate $3 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for each Famous 20-Point Full-Service Oil Change performed during its July 16 - 23 event. Customers will also be able to make a donation directly to Susan G. Komen for the Cure while receiving services in the center.
