COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Friday, some accountants connected with the Children's Hospital of Colorado to wash cars, collect donations and match those funds. Donated funds will be applied to medical research and functions.
Employees at WCG -- a Colorado Springs tax firm -- got out and volunteered their time to support a good cause. It was called the 'Suds for Kids Car Wash,' a charity event to raise money for Children's Hospital. Employees of WCG washed cars and poured lemonade.
"Everyone was just so positive and ready to make some money and ready to donate. Make some money, wash some cars!" said Leticia Anderson, an employee at WCG. "We're donating way more than our suggested donation amounts. Everybody has been donating extra. So it's pretty awesome."
The funds are going directly to the children's hospital of Colorado for medical research.
"Really not a better cause then I can think of, donating money to help families help their babies," said Stephanie Torgerson with WCG.
WCG tax employee Sam Pfennings inspired Friday's event in memory of his late brother Jonah, who lost a battle with acute myeloid leukemia at 20 years old.
"It's really a great feeling. It's surreal to see my employer and community and everyone can really rally around my brother," Pfennings said. "So it's really great to give back to the people who made such a great impact on our lives."
