“Brownsboro High School has joined us in ordering Pink Out Shirts,” said Shani Crow. “We will be splitting the proceeds with Brownsboro ISD.”
The T-shirts will read “Battle Pink Out” “2-Teams – 1-Cause”.
Our proceeds will be going to Joey Rowe and Brownsboro’s will be going to Susan G. Komen foundation in name of one of their teachers,” said Crow.
