Default Car washes for cyclist fatalities

A few days ago a juvenile cyclist was struck and killed by a pick-up truck
here in Phoenix.
Now (as seem to be the norm here) the friends of the family have a car wash
party to raise
money for the family. As I am writing this the news station just announced
another juvenile cyclist

Does anyone else have a problems with these car washes? It's like having a
gun oiling party
to raise money for a gun shot victim. I don't think we should be paying
homage to the weapon
responsible for the child's death regardless of who was at fault.

I think it is more appropriate to hold a bicycle safety rodeo for the
community and ask for donations
from the families that participate. This seems like the best idea but almost
ANYTHING would be better than washing
cyclists' blood off of car grills to raise money.
