Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative’s buildings, vehicles and employees are sporting gold during September to support the fight against childhood cancer. 

This is the fourth year Bluebonnet has gone gold during September in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The cooperative’s buildings will be illuminated in gold light and its vehicles will don gold decals. 

“Cancer is a terrible disease for anyone to endure, but especially for children who have so much of their lives ahead of them,” said Matt Bentke, Bluebonnet’s general manager. “Nearly everyone knows a family who has been touched by childhood cancer. The stories of children courageously fighting for their lives is what inspired Bluebonnet to support this cause.”

In the September issue of Texas Co-op Power magazine, Bluebonnet featured Viviann Snow’s battle with a neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. Snow, a second-grader from Rosanky, was diagnosed in January of this year. Read more about Snow’s fight and the support she has received from family, friends and the community »
