Bras for the Cause Annual fundraiser

BAYTOWN — The Crosby Fair & Rodeo’s Crosby Bras for the Cause Committee continued its strong community-wide support of breast cancer prevention, patient support programs at Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital by recently presenting a check for $90,000 to support the hospital’s Pink Heals Fund and Bras for the Cause Breast Care Fund.

The money was derived from the committee’s annual Bras for the Cause fundraiser. This was the 10th anniversary of the event, which has given over $1 million over the years.

“The committee would like to thank the people of Crosby and surrounding communities for their support,” said board member Debbie Holmelin. “The people of this community are the reason Bras for the Cause is able to make such a generous donation to a very worthwhile organization.”

CROSBY – The filing period begins soon for members of the public who wish to run for a seat on the Crosby Independent School District Board of Trustees.
