Bradshaw's Mini Storage in Wheatland, California, hosted a “dad bod” car wash earlier this month to raise funds for those impacted by the Intanko Fire, including a family whose home was completely destroyed. The June 13 event was spearheaded by Jarod Culler, who had come up with the idea for a fundraiser featuring men of a particular body type just days before the blaze. At the time, he’d had no specific cause in mind, according to the source.
After the wildfire torched nearly 1,000 acres and destroyed the home of the Houston Family, who lived across the street from Culler’s in-laws, Culler decided to raise donations for the victims. He reached out to local dads and posted on social media.
“The response was overwhelming,” Culler said. “Within an hour of posting on Facebook, several hundred people said they would attend.”
The event ultimately raised $2,100. “It was like a party in a parking lot,” said Culler. “We were out there spraying each other with hoses, dancing and just having a good time.”
Bradshaw’s Mini at 119 D St. hosted a second car wash by the same group on June 19 to raise money for the family of two-year-old Tommy Craighead, who died this year from causes unrelated to the fire. The funds were to help offset funeral costs, according to the source. For this event, the “dad bods” were accompanied by “hottie mommies.”
