The Franklin Band from Franklin High School will once again host its annual Car Wash Extravaganza Saturday, May 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the school on Hillsboro Road.
The rain date is Sunday, May 2, from noon to 5 p.m.
Money raised from the car wash will fund all aspects of the band program, including instruments and equipment, marching band show design, props and costumes and transportation/lodging costs.
Tickets for the car wash are $10 each and include a coupon for a buy one/get one cheeseburger at Williamson County Sonic locations. Tickets can be purchased in advance from any band member, or online at thefranklinband.org
"We're excited to bring back the car wash this year, following safety protocols, after having to cancel last year's event due to the pandemic," said band director Jacob Campos.
"The car wash is one of our most successful fundraisers, which are crucial to a successful season. Our students always enjoy the opportunity to connect with our community."
While customers have their cars washed, they can enjoy the sounds of the brass choir and jazz band. Concessions, including grilled hamburgers and hotdogs, will be sold.
Franklin High School is located at 810 Hillsboro Road.
