PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The 10th Annual Paul’s Pay It Forward Car Wash starts on Monday, Oct. 16, and runs through Friday, Oct. 20, at Desert Ridge Marketplace.

Each day, from 4:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., CBS 5’s Chief Meteorologist Paul Horton joins community and corporate volunteers of all ages to wash vehicles with donations benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona (BBBSAZ).

As part of the milestone anniversary celebration, CBS 5’s sister station, 3TV, will host a second location on Friday, Oct. 20, at the SanTan Village location of Jacksons Car Wash (2870 S. Market St., Gilbert, 85296) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Jacksons will provide up to 1,000 professional car washes in exchange for donations to BBBSAZ.

Thanks to CBS 5’s Pay It Forward initiative and commitment to BBBSAZ, and the contributions by other corporate and community partners, Paul’s Pay It Forward Car Wash has grown to become a week-long, family-friendly, community event featuring live entertainment and appearances by special guests all focused on supporting BBBSAZ’s mission.
