We are looking for IRC families that would like to participate in the "Soap it Up" community car wash and BBQ on Saturday June 21st.

100% of the proceeds will be donated, a portion to Cystic Fibrosis and a PORTION to the IRC FUN FAIR!  Last year, Car Star donated over $800 towards the Fun Fair!!  

A community car wash and BBQ is happening at all 200 Carstar Collision & Glass Service locations across Canada. In addition to their support of CF, each Carstar location chooses a community recipient of a large donation (hundreds of dollars). Our local Carstar has chosen IRC. To show our gratitude we need IRC parents & children to come out on Saturday.

Where:  CARSTAR, 2528 St. Clair Ave. West (across from Wal-Mart)
