Paul's Car Wash 2012 raised more than $135,000 for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Central Arizona.
CBS 5 Meteorologist Paul Horton was broadcasting live from Desert Ridge Marketplace as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona staff and community volunteers rolled up their sleeves and got soapy.
Paul was hard at it every day from 4:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. In all, more than 500 cars were washed and polished.
Among those who turned out was NASCAR's Denny Hamlin, Miss Arizona, members of the CBS 5 News anchor team and Phoenix Mercury Hip Hop Squad & Scorch. Even Grumpy Cat showed up to offer some four-legged support.
It's still not too late to donate. Just click on this link for the official donation form.
CBS 5 wants to thank everyone for the great community support and we hope to see you there again next year!
