Brownwood ISD Pink-Out Fundraiser Concludes with Generous $5000 Donation from Big Country Ford
The 2021 Brownwood ISD Pink-Out day came to a close at the football game Friday, October 15th, with a generous donation from Big Country Ford Lincoln to the BISD Pink-Out fund.
Big Country Ford presented a $5000 oversized check to Brownwood ISD Superintendent Dr. Joe Young prior to the start of Friday’s Pink-Out game at Gordon Wood Stadium. Big Country Office Manager, Jennifer Perkins, accompanied by Accounts Payable/Receivable Clerk, Marianna Alvarado, delivered the check ahead of the kick-off.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Brownwood ISD supports the cause each year by designating a “Pink-Out” day. A custom-made t-shirt was designed and sold by the district as a part of the fundraising effort. Faculty, staff, and students within the district, in addition to many community members, wore the pink-put shirt throughout the day to increase awareness and raise money for local families fighting cancer.
The exact amount raised from this year’s Pink-Out event was not yet available, though current estimates show that with Big Country Ford’s donation, it will be over $10,000.
