It was more than cars and trucks that received a clear view from their windshield when Cranbrook resident Kurt Swanson recently held a grand opening for his newest business venture the Victoria Car & Pet Wash.

East Kootenay Foundation for Health reports that the digital mammography campaign also received a generous $500 gift that helped bring the major capital campaign to its fundraising goal.

This is the second gift in support of breast cancer patients from the entrepreneur.   Kurt and his two sons last year donated an additional $500 in support of the Drew Jesse and Max Shoot for the Star campaign which was also dedicated to the mammography project.

It may have been a day filled with soapy water for both pets and cars but for East Kootenay Foundation for Health it is a clear view that Kurt believes in health care in the East Kootenay.
