2 Friday notes: Community Car Wash update; Swinery party

REMINDER, COMMUNITY CAR WASH THIS FRIDAY: Top-down weather today (we took that photo on Beach Drive) … here’s hoping for car-wash weather on Friday! As noted here a few weeks back, that’s the day for the West Seattle Community Car Wash at three locations – Keller Williams Realty (4452 California SW), State Farm Insurance (4727 44th SW), and John L. Scott Realty (5242 California SW). Proceeds go to West Seattle Food Bank or World Vision for Haiti; you can buy tickets in advance right now at any of those locations – and when you come to get your car washed on Friday (10 am-4 pm), be sure to bring nonperishable food donations for the WS Food Bank, too. Organizers are also still looking for volunteers – call Terry Gangon at State Farm, 935-9955, or Jerry Howard at John L. Scott, 935-7700. (Among those who’ve signed up to help so far, the West Seattle High School cheer team.)

SWINERY PARTY: Just got word of this one, in e-mail from Liza: Now that The Swinery‘s patio is open, they’re having a “Grand Re-Opening” party, 4-7 pm Friday. All welcome, we’re told. They’re giving tours every half-hour and featuring specials and a raffle.

    Love the idea of car-wash fund raisers – but sad about the idea of all the soapy water going down storm drains that might drain right into a stream or the Sound.
    I wonder if with all the focus on Combined Sewer Overflow in the West Seattle area if someone could answer the question where do the storm drains go – into the Sound or to a treatment plant?

    The alternative would be to sell tickets and have the ticket holders go to an actual carwash like Brown Bear’s or the Puget Sound Car Wash Association’s programs. Still selling tickets, still fund raising but then you don’t have to worry about finding volunteers to wash cars -or- water quality issues…

    Or to partner with a Waterless Car Wash Company to provide the products for your fundraiser.
