The volunteers with the First Friday organization would like to thank the community of Mathis for participating in the Pink Link fundraiser during the month of October.
A special thank you to Prosperity Bank, Mathis Athletic Boosters and Lakeside Dry Cleaning & Lil’ Boutique for your fundraising efforts. Approximately $1,500 was raised during this event (we still have links out). There are still pink links available at several businesses in town.
The need for funding isn’t just needed in October. We will be having more events to raise funds next year.
I personally would like to thank the businesses in downtown Mathis for pinking out during October. The show of support for all of the residents and families affected by breast cancer was overwhelming. Thank you for your support.
