Champion Car Wash Fundraiser

The Historic Rialto Theater in Florence kicks off a two-week fundraiser in a partnership with Champion Xpress Carwashes nationwide to raise funds for the renovation of the 1923 opera house. Select any one of the multiple wash locations, enter the special Rialto code before you pay for the service and 40% of the price of the car wash will be donated to the Rialto. Simply sit back and let the 125’ tunnel automatic car wash and attendants take care of the rest. The code can be scanned from the graphic or entered manually at the pay station.

The fundraiser begins on April 30th and ends on May 13th and is valid at any one of the 7 locations throughout the Southwestern United States.
