We love it that many of the fine operators in the fast lube industry are ardent supporters of their communities, and we love getting notice of campaigns like the one recently conducted by Fred Saraiva, Jr., one of our Lube Talk forum members and owner of Sierra Lube Express in Yuba City, California. He recently raised $2,500 in five hours by hosting a car show at his shop. He reports that 100 percent of the money went to help Yuba City High School’s FFA program. Not only did the event draw 85 cars, but it also literally raised car count, as since the event he reports car counts are up 3.8 cars per day. Way to go, Fred.
