BAYTOWN— On Oct. 25 the Baytown Professional Firefighters Association presented San Jacinto Methodist Hospital Cancer Center with a check in the amount of $17,000.
The funds, that will go to battling cancer locally, were recently raised through t-shirt sales and various activities at the Pink Heals Event on Oct 8.
The hospital assisted in the fundraising efforts by hosting a pink heels decorating contest and sold t-shirts as well.
In addition to the check presentation, Stephen DonCarlos, Mayor of Baytown, presented the firefighters with a proclamation. The proclamation was dedicated to the firefighters’ efforts to raise awareness for women fighting cancer. The firemen, along with all city employees, wore pink for three days starting Oct. 25 – 27, which was part of the Pink Out Baytown initiative.
