Bluebonnet promotes Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Giddings member service center lit up for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September

Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative’s employees, buildings and vehicles are displaying gold during September to support the fight against childhood cancer. This is the sixth year that Bluebonnet has promoted Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by illuminating its member service centers in Bastrop, Brenham, Giddings, Lockhart and Manor in gold light. Bluebonnet’s member service representatives will wear and hand out gold-ribbon pins, and Bluebonnet crew vehicles will display gold-ribbon decals.

“Nearly all of us know a family who is fighting or has fought cancer. It is particularly difficult when the patient is a child,” said Matt Bentke, Bluebonnet’s general manager. “The stories of children courageously battling and inspiring others is why this effort is so important, and why Bluebonnet is proud to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.”

There are many resources available to support the fight against childhood cancer. For more information about how you can join the cause visit, and get links to the American Cancer Society at, the American Childhood Cancer Organization at, and several other organizations that provide help and support for families battling childhood cancer.
