Carfe Takapuna  in conjunction with over 1,900 other car wash locations  provided  FREE car washes to veterans and current military service personnel, through the Grace for Vets FREE Wash Program, on 11.11.12. The FREE washes were given to honour and recognize those that have and are serving in the armed forces.

Grace for Vets was founded by Mike Mountz, owner of Cloister Wash & Lube, in 2004. The program continues to grow and expand its reach of honouring military service each year as additional car washes register under the program to give FREE washes. Currently there is participation from all 50 United States, and three other countries, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 2011, 638 wash operators, totalling 1,446 locations washed 119,317 military service vehicles on November 11th  “We’re excited that the programme has expanded internationally as it allows more military service to be honoured,” says Robert Bonnici. “I’m proud to be a part of an industry that continually supports our military.” 
For more information visit Carfe Takapuna would like to beat our personal best of 98 and provide 200 washes so please put this event on your calendar now.
