It is the Pink Tie Ball Committee's promise that 100% of funds raised at the Pink Tie Ball 2020 will go towards efforts to raise awareness of cancer and support cancer patients within Southwest Michigan.
For Pink Tie Ball 2020, we will remain transparent with our friends and sponsors.
One of our beneficiaries for 2020 will be Hope Grows LIVESTRONG of Spectrum Health Lakeland. The 12-week LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA program provides a “small group” exercise program designed for adult cancer survivors focused on improving physical, mental, and social health. Participants work with Y staff trained in supportive cancer care to achieve their goals such as building muscle mass and strength, increasing flexibility and endurance, and improving confidence and self-esteem. PTB 2020 will donate $5,250 worth of funds to sponsor 7 individuals to enroll and complete this 12-week program.
$1000 of funds will be utilized for Pink Tie Ball event costs and expenses, as well as placed in preparation for Pink Tie Ball 2021.
All remained funds raised will be granted to our partner, Pennies From Heaven5. Pennies From Heaven5 is a local non profit organization that offers financial assistance to young adults ages 21 to 30 for their living expenses and to provide comfort during their battles with cancer. Representatives from Pennies From Heaven5 have been working diligently with the Pink Tie Ball Committee to ensure this year's event is the best Ball to date.
We are fired up as a Committee to make this another amazing event to benefit our area and to bring together a community as we support one another. Are you interested in sponsoring Pink Tie Ball 2020? Please feel free to contact the Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns you may have.
