League City, TX

In League With Community

CertaPro Painters of League City, Texas took community involvement into the pink through its efforts in promoting fundraising for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. “We worked in coordination with local city officials to bring awareness to this important issue that has touched so many of our family members and friends throughout the community,” said franchise owner Scott Blair.

The efforts centered around a bandstand in League Park, on Main Street in League City, that was slated for a monthlong makeover. The structure is in a busy part of town, visible to thousands of people who drive by and might not even pay attention to the old edifice that probably rocked and ragged to the strains of “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” and “St. Louis Blues.” “It dates back to the early 1900s, then it was refurbished in 1976 and dubbed the Bi-Centennial Band Stand,” Blair said. Last October, it turned pink.

The project started with a prep party as crews washed, sanded and caulked to get ready for Paint It Pink. On the morning of October 1st, 2019, 50 people arrived and the change began. As the paint went up, commuters waved and honked in support, and the community began to rally with the crew to “think pink.” People who didn’t see it in person showed support online; there were almost 20,000 views on various platforms through the chambers, the city and internet news stations.

Along with the entire CertaPro crew, city officials, business leaders and members throughout the community got involved as well. “With one little project, a lot of people became aware of the BCRF, we raised money, a community came together for a common cause and the city’s landmark got a great free paint job,” said Blair. “Many in our community have mentioned it over the past month: ‘Aren’t you the guys who painted the gazebo pink?’”

A month later, they returned it to its original white, which served to give the gazebo a fresh new paint job – plus this project significantly raised recognition for the CertaPro franchise.
