The Pink Tie Ball was a night of hope and community support for a cure for breast cancer. With “Destination…Cure” as its theme, the May 15th gala raised $400,000 for vital breast health services for underserved Orange County women.
Four hundred guests attended the event, held at the private Atlantic Aviation Hangar at John Wayne Airport, and funds were raised through sponsorship levels, ticket sales and revenue opportunities throughout the evening. Among the guests were breast health advocates, the Komen Pink Tie Guys and breast cancer survivors. Staff and 135 volunteers donated their time to help make the evening possible.
The Ball was led by a trio of philanthropic power couples: chairs Analisa and Bruce Albert, with co-chairs Marica Pendjer and John Miller, and Trish and Michael Gustafson. The event’s presenting sponsor was The Allergan Foundation; platinum sponsor was Mindy and Glenn Stearns; gold sponsor was FreeCreditReport.com; and silver sponsor was Saks Fifth Avenue. Those in attendance came together in strong support for raising money to end breast cancer forever.
