Real Men Wear Pink Part 1


3 OUR VERY OWN JORDAN DRESSMAN IS PART OF A SPECIAL PROJECT THIS MONTH. IT INVOLVES FIREFIGHTERS AND THE COLOR PINK…. AND IT’S FOR A GREAT CAUSE. 3 I RECENTLY GOT TO BE A PART OF A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE AMERICAN CANCERS SOCIETY’S “REAL MEN WEAR PINK” CAMPAIGN THAT YOU’LL BE SEEING A LOT OF THIS MONTH. THIS IS MY FIRST YEAR TO HEAD UP THE WZDX PINK CAMPAIGN BUT I WAS JOINED BY SOME TRUE VETERANS OF THE PROGRAM, THE HUNTSVILLE FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION.
