All Tidal Wave Auto Spa locations across the Southeast recently hosted the company’s ninth annual Charity Day event, in which 100 percent of the proceeds from that day were donated to charitable organizations.

Tidal Wave Auto Spa Charity Day 2017 was the best yet, raising a grand total of $53,401.86.

Charity Day is one of Tidal Wave’s biggest events throughout the year. In the nine years that this event has taken place, Tidal Wave has given back over $300,000 to local charities.

“We deal with organizations where our fundraising directly benefits people, and we are looking forward to working with organizations in this local area,” said Coty Stevens, Tidal Wave Auto Spa’s team development leader, in a previous interview.

Proceeds from the Rocky Mount Tidal Wave Auto Spa location at 1615 Benvenue Road — the company’s first location to open in North Carolina — were donated to the Down East Partnership for Children.

Numerous other worthy organizations shared the benefit of these funds. Annandale Village received $23,433.55. Annandale is a Special Needs community in Suwanee, Ga serving adults from 34 states. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital received $9,598.27.
