AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls have teamed up with the Susan G Komen West Texas organization for an amazing event.
Head Coach Rocky Russo is donning a Pink Wig in support of the BigWigs Fundraiser joining other local celebrities like Mayor Ginger Nelson, KAMR-NBC 4 Meaghan Collier just to name a few.
The BigWigs campaign engages local corporate and community leaders as representatives in the fight against breast cancer. During the 3 week campaign, each BigWig will raise or give a minimum of $3,500, which will be used to ensure access to essential breast health services and education programs, and support research to find the cures for breast cancer. Through this program, 75 percent of funds raised remain in our local West Texas communities to help fund local breast cancer initiatives.
“I’m very proud and excited to be part of the Susan G. Komen BigWigs initiative,” said Russo. “Helping to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer is something very important to me and my family. I am honored to have been chosen as a representative of the Amarillo community and the Amarillo Bulls organization.”
A BigWig is known as a important person, usually a VIP, while a Komen BigWig is a very important person on a mission to end breast cancer forever by raising awareness and funds in their community, willing to have fun by wearing a ridiculous pink wig.
