Foundation Autobell Car Wash

The Durham Foundation is selling AutoBell Carwash tickets for $16.00 a piece, the same price as the tickets would cost if you went to AutoBell to buy them.  The benefit to Durham is that we will receive $8.00 of that money back if you buy the tickets from any Foundation member or at the school. Also, we have tax receipts that we can give you as this is considered a charity donation.  Everyone needs a carwash, right?  Please consider a ticket to AutoBell.  Purchases can be made in the front office at Durham.  There is no expiration date on the ticket. Thanks so much
