It all takes place at Lost Pines Toyota in Bastrop, TX on Saturday, October 21. The fun starts 4:00 p.m., and the music and dancing start at 9:30 p.m.

The fun comes with a serious side. Laurie’s Pickups & Pink is the fourth yearly fundraiser year in a row that Laurie Liriano and the Liriano Family Foundation have raised funds to provide free cancer screenings for Bastrop County women who are underinsured or uninsured.

In cooperation with Seton Hospital, monies raised at these events have brought the hospital’s mobile mammogram bus, lovingly dubbed “The Big Pink Bus,” to Lost Pines Toyota a dozen times. These potentially life-saving screenings have resulted in positive tests for at least 5 women. The screenings and any follow-up treatments are free of charge.

Experts in the field will be present to answer questions and provide attendees with literature about this cancer, which is very treatable if detected early.

What should you do right now? Save that date – October 21. Remember the place – Lost Pines Toyota in Bastrop, TX. If you and some of your friends have a truck, and not necessarily a Toyota truck, shine it up, and come show it off.

Most of us have been touched by breast cancer, either through a friend or family member. Even if you don’t have a truck, come out for an afternoon and evening of fun, food, and dancing for a great cause.

Check back with us in a few days for details on the entire program, competition and prizes. You won’t want to miss it. Oh yes, bring some friends.
