SAN ANGELO–The Fort Concho VFW was the site of Saturday's first Bikini car/ Bike wash by two female owners, who collaborated with another owner, to do the benefit in behalf of veterans.

Alena Creamer and Savannah Wright, and one of their employees, Katy Flanagan, tag-teamed with Alisa Piteo, owner/club manager of the VFW Post 1815.

Conexión asked both ladies why they chose VFW? "Because of the veterans, they are awesome and we have to support them," Wright said. Creamer also chimed in saying she wanted Piteo to get her alcohol license.

At the time of the interview, Savannah said they had washed seven vehicles. A donation of $10 per person was the minimum to wash a car, a motorcycle, truck or any other type of vehicle. The event was held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

"We appreciate you guys (veterans) you keep us free," both of them said.

Creamer and Wright are owners of a business, Absolute Ink, that they started two years ago. The company is located at 1216 W. Beauregard Ave. 

 The Fort Concho VFW Post 185 is located at 125 S. Browning St.
