Richmond, VA – On Saturday May 23, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., both RIO Car Wash locations in the Richmond area will donate 50% of all car wash revenues to the Richmond SPCA. The car washes are located at 8220 Midlothian Turnpike in Richmond and 11100 Hull Street in Midlothian.
“The Richmond SPCA provides a tremendous service to the community and we are whole heartedly behind their mission,” said Jeff Small, owner of RIO Car Wash. “This will be a wonderful opportunity for our customers to learn more about the SPCA and get a great a car wash at the same time.”
The event will be promoted in newspaper, radio and on site signage, as well as through the SPCA. “We anticipate that we will see upwards of 1000 cars at each location so we look forward to helping make a real difference in the community,” Small noted. “We invite anyone who believes in the welfare of animals to come out on this special day and help support the Richmond SPCA.”
