Fort businesses dressed to impress on Pink Shirt Day (Feb.28).
 
The Fort Saskatchewan Boys and Girls Club not only celebrated Pink Shirt Day, they also found a way to get businesses wearing pink.
 
They held their first Paint the Town Pink competition to help spread anti-bullying awareness.
 
"We had 14 businesses take part throughout the community, decorating their windows and store fronts, so it's really great they were able to get involved as well," said club executive director Wendy Serink.
 
After their rally through the city, everyone gathered at the Station Square Co-op where they announced Titan Towing as the winner.
 
"The cause is very important to us at Titan Towing and Minute Muffler and we will continue to support it," said Leanne Gray with Titan Towing. "Our office Grandma Debbie and Celeste had a blast decorating the Minute Muffler main entrance. They were so creative and involved all the staff by taking pictures of them wearing pink sunglasses and holding anti-bullying signs throughout the month of February."
 
The kids at the boys and girls club went around town taking photos of businesses who took part in the contest and then voted on a winner.
