“Many members of the Braxton-Bragg Team and their families have been affected by cancer, and we feel blessed to be a part of such a great cause,” says Braxton-Bragg CEO Rick Stimac. “We’d like to thank everyone for participating, and donating to this worthy cause, with a special thanks to our customer Tammy Stuffle at US Marble in Johnson City, for walking with our Braxton-Bragg team both years.”
