A Letter From A Long Time Friend!

Printer-friendly version

Good Evening Everyone,
It is that time of year again for CHADS ANNUAL CAR WASH! I am happy to say that this is my 5th year doing the car wash. Through the continuous support of family, friends, CHADS, and members of the community, I have raised $4,781.07 for "Kids Walking 4 Kids- Celebrating Hope." All proceeds from the car wash go directly to CHADS (Communities Healing Adolescent Depression and Suicide) Coalition for Mental Health. CHADS mission is committed to educating the community on the warning signs of teen depression, raising funds for early-onset depression research, and preventing the senseless loss of young lives to suicide. I started this car wash in 2008 with a small group of friends. Since then the car wash has increased into great success. As the host of CHADS ANNUAL CAR WASH, I strive to get as many people I can involved such as students and staff from school to local businesses in the community. Every year I have the Kona Ice, Ice Cream truck and a live DJ there. On Saturday, March 31st, 2012 I will be hosting Day 1 of CHADS 5th ANNUAL CAR WASH. The event will take place at the Auto Zone in Lake St. Louis (6425 Ronald Reagan Blvd) across from Lowes from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Make-up for DAY 1 will be Saturday, April 21st, 2012 at the Lake St. Louis Auto Zone from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. I will also be hosting Day 2 of CHADS 5th ANNUAL CAR WASH on Saturday, April 28th, 2012.
My purpose of this email is to make you aware of the car wash and to invite you and everybody you know to attend. The event is a lot of fun and money raised will go to a much needed cause. As a former victim of depression, I will go all out for this event because it means a lot to me. Sadly, this will be my last car wash for awhile due to my 6 year enlistment in the NAVY. Please consider on attending and/or volunteering for this fun-filled event. If you are unable to attend, please consider sponsoring or donating to my efforts to help raise awareness and funds for CHADS Coalition. For more information, please go to (My mom's email is
