Hamilton, Ontario – CARSTAR Automotive Canada will attempt to set a Guinness World Record while raising funds for charity by washing more than 4,000 cars in eight hours at multiple venues on Saturday, June 20, 2009.

The CARSTAR Soaps It Up event is part of a North America-wide attempt at CARSTAR locations across Canada and the U.S. to set a record.

The event is CARSTAR Canada’s sixth annual fundraising event. The 2009 event will mark a major milestone as CARSTAR in the U.S. kicks off its own Soaps It Up National Car Wash Day, and works as a cross-border team with the Canadian locations. Half of the Canadian funds raised will go to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, with half of U.S. funds donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Participating locations in both countries will then donate the remaining funds to local charity groups.

Tickets are $5 per wash and are available at participating CARSTAR locations, or by visiting CARSTAR.
