An elegant party is scheduled to take off on Saturday, May 15 at the Atlantic Aviation hangar at John Wayne Airport and you are invited. “Destination Cure” is the theme for the 2010 Pink Tie Ball to benefit the Komen Orange County. The unique setting at the private hangar is perfect to represent Komen’s worldwide search for the cure for breast cancer.
Guests will begin the evening in the open air hangar while the sun sets. After the reception — which includes food, champagne, silent auction and Parade of Art — the guests will move to the decorated dining area for a gourmet dinner by Crème de la Crème, dancing, a Live Auction and other entertainment.
If you are unable to attend, you can participate through the Keys of Hope or Ignite Your Promise. Keys of Hope is an opportunity drawing for a necklace valued at $8,000 and donated by Black, Starr & Frost. You can purchase a vintage-style key for $100 – each key gives you an opportunity to win. Ignite Your Promise is a monthly philanthropic gift to Komen Orange County. You select the level — $25, $50, $100 or more – each month for the next year. In appreciation of each annual donation of $300 or more, Yard House Restaurants will give the donor a Yard House gift card worth $25 per month for the full year.
Pink Tie Ball tickets are $350 per person. To purchase tickets or be part of Keys of Hope or Ignite Your Promise, call Tami Thompson, Komen’s Director of Development, at 714-957-9157 x 27 or email her at TThompson@komenoc.org.
