NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Several local celebrities took part in a car wash this weekend to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Valentino's restaurant hosted the event Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. behind the restaurant located at 1904 West End Avenue.

Cancer patients Bryson Randolph and Natalie Seale, Nashville's Boy and Girl of the Year in for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, were the guests of honor.

Seale told Nashville's News 2, "I really hope to be able to draw support.  Maybe my presence will be able to bring in more money to this great cause."

Organizers hope events like Sunday's let cancer patients know they have support.

"It's important to give back, let them know that they're not alone.  That there's hope for them and we're going to fight as long as they do and be there with them every step of the way," said event organizer Jason Conner.

Titans' linebacker Colin McCarthy and former Titan Brad Hopkins took part in the event, along with Reality TV stars Amanda Salinas and Chelsea Bush.  News 2 morning anchor Neil Orne also attended.

One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Three food trucks were also onsite, donating 10% of their sales, as well a massage therapist.  All donations for massages were donated to the cause.
