18 July 2011 Lester Smith

July 19, 2011

What do you get when you combine a second generation Texas oilman, a Latin Dance champion, die-hard Texans football fan, and two-time cancer survivor with a penchant for giving back? You get Lester Smith, who’s running The Lester Smith Pink Well Challenge.  The Pink Well Challenge will award a total of $1,000,000 to up to 20 eligible non-profit organizations, each involved in the fight against breast cancer.  Lester’s goal is to raise awareness of breast cancer and fund cancer research, and like any good “laid back” Texan, he’s doing it in a BIG way.

Lester’s not shy. He’s a shrewd and hard-nosed businessman who built a billion dollar Energy Company while simultaneously fighting bladder cancer.  Lester is also one of the wackiest and nicest guys you’ll ever meet.  So, rather than quietly handing money to non-profit organizations, he’s letting THE PEOPLE decide where the money’s going to go.
