Fillmore Pink Party – We’re Tickled Pink

Sometimes things go better than you plan.  Sometimes people blow you away.  This year’s Pink Party was such an event where we had such an unexpected turnout and the generosity of the attendees and sponsors exceeded our wildest fantasies.
Some say that you can count your blessings by the quality of the friends you have surrounded yourself with.  When we looked around the room at the El Caribe, you can see that we are a truly blessed community that cares about others.  The room was beautifully decorated with an abundance of 250+ gifts and beautiful faces throughout.  The whole event touched so many people in so many different ways, that I must say that I am so very proud of my mom Pat Reinhardt who spearheaded this event along with my sister Ann MacBride, Josie Liascas, Maryann Arbia and the entire Fillmore Cares committee.  Can you imagine the effort and the amount of time that was put into this…you wouldn’t believe it! Months upon months of collecting, selling, assembling, ordering, and coordinating to get the job done.  Now, this is now anyone’s full time job but I tell you it was a top shelf production.  It seemed that people came, had a nice evening and went home happy.  Many people are already saying that they’ll be back next year.

We are already speaking to the El Caribe about a repeat of what we had this year, but we have a hunch that the word is going to spread and we are going to be challenged for space once again.

Thanks for an outstanding job in being part of Fillmore Cares Pink Party.  We’ve raised tens of thousands of dollars while having laughs, fun and celebrating life together.

Kings Plaza and Macerich Join Major Event Underwriters for Pink Party

Kings Plaza is now under new ownership, and the new company is Macerich.  Macerich has a track record of getting involved with the community and becoming an integral part of the activities around town.  Macerich’s immediate willingness to get behind our Fillmore Cares Pink Party is proof that they mean business.

The ideas that this new group has for Kings Plaza is exciting, and the fact that they are listening to our needs and concerns is something that is welcomed and appreciated.

Watch for great new things to happen in the neighborhood and we would like to welcome Macerich and Kings Plaza as a major supporter for this year’s Pink Party.

Thank You
The Fillmore Cares Team!

 

Fillmore Pink Party Breaks All Records

As of this writing, the attendance for the Fillmore Pink Party is now over 350!  The most we ever had at the previous events was around 220 which was the previous venue’s capacity.  The decision to move to a new place was a tough one, but as you have proven to us, it is a necessary one that has taken this event to the next level.  The efforts of all involved has been over the top as we’re truly getting better at this with each year’s experience and as our friends of the Pink Party grow year after year.  It’s the type of event that once you go to it, you’ll want to come back.

This year’s attendees will be entertained with some special music by Francesca as we walk around the room selecting which of the 250+ gift baskets to choose from.  The decision is going to be a tough one, as you will discover that there is a basket for everyone’s taste.  “I think they thought of everyone,” claims event chairperson Pat Reinhardt, “there are baskets for just about every season, holiday, hobby, and things that will entertain you like spa’s, restaurants, and trips!”

We are excited that there are more prizes and more attendees, but most of all we are proud to be raising more money to help in our fight against breast cancer!
Get ready for a great night, with great people…for a great cause!
