A Big Pink Splash at Johnson Elementary

Pink t-shirts, pink sweatshirts, pink hats, socks and other accessories are a common sight during the month of October. As the Carroll Dragons host its fifth annual Pink Out home football game, the effort to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer is seen district wide.

So too, at Johnson Elementary School where this year, the campus PTO raised nearly $450 in donations for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The PTO sold special JES Pink Out t-shirts and donated $2 for every shirt sold to the foundation.

This is the first year, JES PTO hosted a breast cancer awareness/ research fundraiser.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. To help shed light on one of the number one causes of death in women, the Southlake Fire Department is once again participating in the Susan G. Komen campaign to raise awareness and money for cancer research.  We have designed a pink firefighter T-shirt and a baseball cap that symbolizes our support for all of the courageous breast cancer victims and survivors.    

Southlake Firefighters will be wearing pink T-shirts and caps during the month of October.  Extra shirts and baseball caps have been ordered for individuals who would also like to show their support for Breast Cancer Awareness.  All proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts and caps will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The baseball caps are $10 and the short sleeve T-shirts are $12. If you are interested in purchasing one of these items please contact Our Community Initiatives Coordinator Renni Burt at You will need to add your full name, phone number, and the size requested.

The Southlake Fire Services Division would like to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your support in this very worthwhile effort. We feel very fortunate to have the support of our citizens and we want to take this opportunity to support others in their time of need.
