During the month of October the Cosmetology students held fundraisers to give back to the local breast cancer awareness chapter Beta Sigma Phi.

The Cosmetology Club put together a pink basket of items to be raffled. Each one of the club members sold tickets around the campus and community. They also sold pink beauty items at the Cosmetology department and during the Eastern Wyoming College volleyball games.
