Throughout the fall, Coffee County Central High School’s Future Business Leaders of America club has collected $5,000 in the I Wear Pink For… breast cancer awareness campaign. The funds went to the Tennessee Breast Cancer Coalition, an organization that aids cancer paients in the area. To raise money the FBLA sold T-shirts, Otis Spunkmeyer breast cancer cookies developed a pink ribbon wall in honor of cancer victims and survivors and hosted a pink out game.
