Menear helps out Shriners

Magic Suds Truck Wash Inc. reached out in a big way to help The Shriners at their first anniversary celebration.

Meaghan Menear, owner of the truck wash decided to hold a live auction with donated items for bid including a Shriners bear, gift certificates and much more.

Jones, Vold and Vold Auction Co. Ltd. were on site to auction of the items supplied by generous donors.

Through the support of benevolent bidders a total of $3,100 was raised for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.

“Menear was pleased with the amount raised.

“The Shriners are a part of our family and they are a super charity. I’m very humbled to give them the money. It’s needed and very much appreciated.”

Menear said she was “extraordinarily happy” to see people step up to the plate and help out with such a worthy cause.

Several Shriners were on hand at the event to serve hotdogs and Menear served a celebration anniversary cake.
