Waves owner Mike Anthenelli said that between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., his business will donate $4 of every car washed to the the Tunnell Cancer Center, calling the event “Tunnell Tuesday.”
Antenelli explained how he came up with the idea to hold the fundraiser, along with his wife Danni.
“We wanted wanted to do something with Beebe before I even opened the car wash,” he said. “We’ve been open for about a month or so now. So when I met with the Beebe marketing/fundraising team, they had suggested doing something for the Tunnell Cancer Center.”
Anthenelli said he has a personal interest in this as he lost his father to pancreatic cancer about two years ago and his mother is a cancer survivor.
“What could be a better place our resources could go but to the Tunnell Cancer Center?” he said.
“We are so appreciative of Waves’ generous support of Beebe’s Tunnell Cancer Center,” said Judy L. Aliquo, president and CEO of the Beebe Medical Foundation. “The funds raised today will benefit the 35,000 patients we treat each year at the center. Beebe is so fortunate to have supporters like Mike and Danni who shared that they couldn’t think of better place to support than Beebe. Thank you to everyone who came to Waves today and left with a beautifully clean car and also contributed to our local award-winning cancer center.”
