October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Lone Star Ag Credit’s 2017 Relay For Life Event Leadership Team is challenging local businesses and individuals to participate in their ‘Puttin’ on the Pink’ challenge.
“Lone Star Ag Credit did it last year and donated $6,500 to the American Cancer Society,” senior loan administrator Shelley Gilliland said. “What we did is took pink out pictures (everyone sporting their pink attire) from each branch and posted on social media. Lone Star Ag Credit agreed to donate $1 per like on Facebook.”
Gilliland said they are hoping to get the community involved in donating to the cancer society by posting their own photos to Facebook or other social media pages.
There will not be a set deadline to post the photos, but posting by the end of October is ideal for the challenge.
“Our event leadership team is hoping to get more businesses to join in the challenge and support breast cancer awareness and the American Cancer Society,” Gilliland said.
Gilliland asks that participants post their photos using the hashtag #PinkOutChallenge and contact her with any questions at 254-965-3612.
