Mick Fleetwood will wash cars at the Aloha for Japan Celebrity Car Wash this Saturday.

WAILUKU — Mick Fleetwood, legendary drummer and co-founding member of the iconic band Fleetwood Mac, will show up with a bucket and a bar of soap to help earn money for the American Red Cross-Hawaii Chapter’s Japan relief efforts at Ho’ole’a Terrace at Kehalani’s “Aloha for Japan Celebrity Car Wash” this Saturday, April 30.

George Fontaine and Sherri Grimes.

The car wash will be by donation only. The first 25 people to donate $25 or more will receive a free official “Aloha for Japan” T-shirt.

Featured entertainment includes Hawaii’s “Reggae Ambassador,” Marty Dread, with a special performance of his hit song “Mouse In The House” just for the keiki at 11:30 a.m.

Maui Rents & Sales, Sounds Good Audio and Keiki Corner have donated their time and services to help provide entertainment and food free to the public. The event will also include prize drawings and giveaways.
