CROSBY – As part of a Night Performance at the Crosby Rodeo the Crosby Bras for a Cause Committee presented 3 checks at the CF&R 2022 with proceeds from the 2022 event held in February of this year.

$90,000 to Houston Methodist Baytown. These funds will be divided between the Pink Heals Fund and the BFC Breast Care Fund. Pink Heals supports patients with a cancer diagnosis who need financial support while going through treatment for expenses that insurance will not cover. BFC Breast Care Fund provides financial assistance with breast screenings and diagnostics for cancer diagnosis.

$40,000 donated to CandleLighters Childhood Alliance. CL supports families of children who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

$2,000 donated to Joseph’s Warriors, a family foundation formerly from Crosby whose 10-year-old son passed away from cancer and they visit children with cancer in the hospital and take gifts to them.

CANDLELIGHTERS CHILDHOOD ALLIANCE received $40,000. CL board member Jay Beasley points to the amount, as BFC members hold check.

The next fundraising event by Bras for a Cause will be Feb 4, 2023 at the Crosby American legion Hall.
