Volunteer Leaders Kirsten Overgaard and Joseph Buckle are ready to bring the shine to the Third Annual Car Wash for Kids with the help of Dr. Teresa Cody of C & C Dental.

Come April 13th, the Hope for Three Teen Huddle will wipe on and wipe off all in the effort of autism awareness. The Third Annual Car Wash for Kids will take place at C & C Dental, located at 17003 Southwest Freeway in Sugar Land.  Teens from area schools will be on hand to wash cars from 11 am to 3 pm. The cost is free of charge; however, donations are welcome.

Just as the teens are putting a shine to community vehicles, Beauty Indulgence Day Spa, located less than three minutes away from the car wash event at 4715 Sweetwater Blvd. in Sugar Land, will pamper all patrons with a $24 haircut and blow dry – a $65 value. Half of the haircut proceeds benefit the Hope for Three Family Resources Program.   Stylists will be available to cut, style and cater to the community from 11 am to 5 pm.

Both events will be lots of fun with one mission in mind: autism awareness. “There’s nothing like witnessing the members of our young community showing why it’s cool to care for another human being, especially a child with autism,” said Sharon Buckle, Hope for Three Volunteer and mom to a child on the autism spectrum.

Along with Beauty Indulgence’s contributions, the company will participate in the Second Annual Strike Out Autism Family Fun Day, set for April 27th, as well as offer an afternoon of soothing indulgence for three autism moms who will be chosen during a drawing. “Our partnering with Hope for Three is our way of giving back to the community,” said Shaida Kootahi, Beauty Indulgence owner. “You have to preach the beauty inside and outside.”

The salon will also raise funds at the event for clean water at home and around the world in observation of Earth Month. Keeping with the eco-friendly effort is Eco-Touch Premium Car Care, a Green America Certified Company, that will provide non-toxic, bio-degradable supplies for the waterless car wash.

Car Wash for Kids and Beauty Indulgence are part of a number of Hope for Three events and programs scheduled during April Autism Awareness Month.  For more information, call 1-800-317-0787 or visit www.hopeforthree.org.
