Fundraising tactics – topless carwash

March 7, 2009

The other day, an Avon walker told me about a fundraising effort she had done.  She went to a local bank with a drive through set up.  The drive through was in the back of the building, not visible from the street.   She asked if she could use the bank’s parking lot on a Sunday, the manager agreed.

On the day of the event, she had women in bikini tops holding signs on the side walk “Topless carwash $10” and arrows pointing to the back of the bank.   Cars were lined up waiting to go behind the bank.  Once in line, there was no way to turn around.  When the drivers made it to the front of the line, they were greeted by the local volunteer firemen, all topless, washing the cars.  The fundraiser netted over $2,000.

A variation of the theme is to have kids wash the cars.  The “topless” part comes in because they are too short to wash the roofs.  The cars are clean except for the tops.
