Peter Rex, Mr. Steamworks 2007, who organized it all wrote to let me know how it went:
The car wash was a huge success, even with the rain. We raised over $8000! Everyone had a really, really good time for a good cause. Haven't had a chance to properly advise everyone (yesterday was a really hard day). Best place to go to see photos is www.proudfm.com. When you take a look at the photos you'll see what I mean. "Red, Wet & Blue" (a gallery print I donated) was part of a silent auction and was sold for $700. I really think it would have gone higher but for the rain. It kept people from getting over to the displays. Still, by having a silent auction, the overall amounts raised for the raffle and auction was increased. Once again, thank you very much for everything. Your poster was really really appreciated.
