On Sept. 29, CertaPro Painters in Pearland teamed up with Blingle Premier Lighting in Alvin to raise awareness for breast cancer research.

The gist

Through CertaPro Painters’ Paint It Pink campaign, the company pledged to raise $155,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which funds 3,100 research hours, according to its website.

To raise awareness, painting crews hired by CertaPro Painters painted the exterior of Blingle a vibrant shade of pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is recognized in October.

In their own words

While CertaPro Painters in Pearland has participated in Paint It Pink for over 10 years, this is the first year they have partnered with another business to paint that business pink, CertaPro Painters owner Mandi Cooper said.

Participating in the campaign is incredibly close to home for Mandi and her husband, who lost a close friend to uterine cancer earlier in 2023.

One more thing

CertaPro Painters will donate $10 for every project completed in October and November to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Cooper said.
