    • Handling the Heat: Animal Safety & High Temperatures
      The heat index soared this weekend, and that naturally raises questions about safety—for both our costumed interpreters and animals. Besides plenty of water, breaks, and shade, Coach & Livestock utilizes a heat index policy for working animals.  Cattle—like dogs—cannot sweat, so they are removed from work when the heat index reaches 95°.  Horses can swea […]
    • THE WORD ON DOG STREET: REVERSING ATTENDANCE TRENDS
      The word on DoG Street is that the program changes at Colonial Williamsburg over the past few years have led to a decline in attendance. In fact, just the opposite is true. In 2014, after President Mitchell Reiss and his new team brought innovative program changes to CW, attendance rose after a seven-year decline. For...Read More »
    • An Open Letter to the Colonial Williamsburg Community
      The role of Williamsburg in America’s founding is nothing short of extraordinary.

W&M Football Team Washing Cars for Charity

From W&M Sports

William & Mary football coach Jimmye Laycock opened spring practice recently with a slight change in game plan. For years, his players had been involved in community events, visiting hospitals, working at schools, etc., though usually as individuals or in small groups.
“Coach said he wanted us to do something as a team,” quarterback Brent Caprio said. “He said he even had a specific charity in mind.”
That charity is Avalon, a center for women and children that has served the Greater Williamsburg area for more than 30 years. Its list of services not only supports victims of domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault, but educates the community in an effort to end relationship violence.
On Sunday, March 18, from 1-5 p.m., the football team will sponsor a car wash and wish-list drive to benefit Avalon at three local businesses: American Pride Automotive (5406 Airport Road), Wasabi Oriental Buffet (1203 Richmond Road) and Exxon Mobile Gas Station (6446 Richmond Road).
Prepaid coupons are available for purchase for $5 from any William & Mary football player, or supporters can pay for the car washes at any of the locations during the event.
“We’re hoping to raise between $4,000 and $5,000,” Caprio said. “In addition to selling pre-paids, we’re starting to get some donations from alumni.”
In addition to raising money for Avalon, the team will also collect "wish list" items for the center. Desirable items include paper towels, toilet paper, toothpaste, garbage bags, cleaning products and dry laundry detergent.
All proceeds from the event go directly to Avalon. Anyone wishing to pay by check can make it out directly to Avalon.
“We’re calling this the ‘inaugural’ car wash for a reason,” Caprio said. “Hopefully, this will become an annual event, an annual way for this football team to give something back to the community.”
Any inquiries about the event may be made to the William & Mary football office, in care of Zbig Kepa at 757-221-3376.
