Local business Wash ‘N Roll made a huge splash in the Ascension Parish community on Thursday, October 15 with the donation of $3,500 dollars to Geaux Pink.
This was only made possible by the generosity of the #AuthenticAscension community, who showed up to make a difference. Cars lined up at Wash ‘N Roll to make a donation to the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Gonzales at the car wash from 9-5 p.m. on October 7.
The car wash promised to match all donations and encouraged participants to donate by giving away free “Ultimate Wash” coupons with a donation made on-site.
The Wash ‘N Roll family is dedicated to supporting the Ascension community. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, early cancer detection is still the key to recovery.
A portion of the funds raised through Geaux Pink supports mobile breast cancer screenings at no cost throughout the community. With job loss and uninsured numbers at an all-time high, the help of those who can afford to donate has never been more in need.
Mary Bird Perkins in Gonzales offers Ascension Parish residents access to leading-edge radiation therapy, diagnostic imaging and key supplemental services in a comfortable, supportive setting. The Cancer Center works in partnership with Our Lady of the Lake Ascension Hospital, providing comprehensive cancer services for area residents.
