PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Summer is over and we can all start returning outside our air conditioned homes to enjoy the weather. A place we would love for you to visit is our 10th Annual  Pay it Forward Car Wash benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona.

Last year with the help of our viewers and local businesses we raised over $235,000!

[SLIDESHOW: Past events!]

The car wash will be held Oct. 16-20 at Desert Ridge Market Place right in front of Kohls. We start washing cars early in the morning at 4:30 a.m. and end at 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

[SPECIAL SECTION: CBS 5's Pay it Forward]

We will partner with local radio stations, and do live hits for every newscast for CBS 5 and our sister station 3TV.

I will even be living in an RV on site so we can go live washing cars early each morning.

It is a ton of fun, and a great community event. We have about 2,000 cars drive through during the week and have a ton of celebrities stop by. Mayor Greg Stanton usually kicks things off every year; he was a big brother with the program.

Other celebrities who have made appearances are Cardinals owner Mike Bidwell, former Phoenix Suns player Dan Majerle, the famous Grumpy Cat, former Diamondback Luis Gonzales and even Gov. Doug Ducey.

Come see us at Desert Ridge Marketplace and get your car washed for a good cause!

    If you haven't checked out the beautiful Salt River horses, you are missing out! The beautiful wild horses can been seen at a few spots along the Salt and Verde Rivers. One great spot is Phon D Sutton Recreation Site. But when is the best time to see the wild horses and maybe take some pictures?

    Is the sun getting cooler? That’s a question a lot of researchers are asking and much of the evidence indicates the sun will get at least 7 percent cooler by 2050.
