Fairbury FBLA Chapter hosted a pink out at the home basketball game between the Fairbury Jeffs and the Schuyler Warriors. During the weeks leading up to the game Fairbury FBLA members went around to local businesses and asked for sponsorships. The members got 25 businesses to sponsor the game and raised $1250 for sponsorships. Pink t-shirts that said “Knock-out Cancer” on the front and listed the sponsors on the back were sold at the games and worn by all Fairbury Jeff basketball players as warm-ups. The sales for the t-shirts reached a total of $1796. During the varsity games there was a bucket that was being passed around collecting donations for cancer research. That collected a total of $101.01. After all expenses, the Fairbury FBLA chapter and the towns of Fairbury and Schuyler donated $2076.01 to cancer research. Contributed Photo
