Saturday’s Palm Desert Car Wash to Benefit Jill Grant Memorial Scholarship Fund
PALM DESERT – On Saturday morning, high school students will wash cars to raise funds for a scholarship honoring the life of Jill Thomas Grant. Grant, a beloved 20-year Palm Desert High School math teacher, was found deceased last December.
The car wash will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 17 at Palm Desert Self Serve Car Wash in Palm Desert, 73-220 Highway 111.
It is the final service project of the school year for the Palm Desert Youth Committee and Supervisor John J. Benoit’s Coachella Valley Youth Advisory Council.
The price per vehicle is $5 and advance tickets will be sold during business hours at Supervisor Benoit’s office and in the special programs department at Palm Desert City Hall.
Last year, the joint committees’ car wash raised $770 for Shelter From The Storm.
