The TENTH ANNUAL Fillmore Cares – Breast Cancer Fundraiser

It’s hard to believe that TEN YEARS have passed since the first Fillmore Cares breast cancer fundraiser was created at the Hudson River Yacht Club.  Nearly 75 people were in attendance in this most exciting room and we knew that we were on to something special.  Before you knew it, we outgrew the space there with over 175 attendees and we had to move to another venue.  The El Caribe graciously hosted our event for the past few years now and we are so grateful that they did.  You couldn’t ask for better people to work with than the team at the El Caribe.  Every year since we have moved the event, we’ve doubled the old attendance record.

This year, we’re looking to break all records and hit over 400 people at what is expected to be a SOLD OUT event.  Some of the exciting things that we’re going to be doing at this event is to support the only breast cancer center in Brooklyn: Maimonides Breast Cancer Center.

We will be hearing from the renowned Dr. Patrick Borgen at the Pink Party, where he will tell you of the latest advancements and ways that his amazing center is helping our community.
We look forward to working together to make this event something truly special as we celebrate 10 Years of Service!

Please get your tickets early as we believe that this event will sell out!

Say Something Nice…


This year, we have a ONE TIME Souvenir Tribute Journal to honor the memory of Pat Reinhardt.  Now will be your chance to say something nice and impactful as to how Pat has affected your life.  There have been so many people who wanted to leave a note in her honor.  Here is the place to do so.

From only $20 donation, you can say something and it will be forever memorialized in the special Memorial Tribute Journal.  You can use this opportunity to showcase your business or special memory in this journal.  Perhaps others are struggling and you would like to encourage them through a kind word or gesture.

Local businesses will get a copy of this journal.  Those in attendance will also have the ability to pick up a copy at the event.
The journal is a strong indication that the people in it are community minded and supportive.
I believe that it’s going to be like the PINK PAGES DIRECTORY.
I would choose to do business with someone who cares and gives back…wouldn’t you!

Fillmore Cares Breast Cancer Event Renamed “Pats Pink Party”

The Fillmore Pink Party will now be called Pat’s Pink Party in honor of our founder Pat Reinhardt who passed away from breast cancer on May 26th, 2015.  Pat founded this wonderful event 8 years ago when she saw it as a worthy cause to help her friends and other women out who were stricken by this horrible disease.  Little did Pat know, that she would suffer from this same disease a few years ago.
Pat has lead her live as a strong leader and never quit.  She always encouraged others facing challenges to keep on fighting and to live life to it’s fullest.
“When you die, it doesn’t mean that you lose to cancer.  You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and in the manner in which you live.” Stuart Scott

quotePat has beat cancer because she lived life each day.  She traveled and spent time with family, and most of all she dedicated a tremendous portion of her time and energy helping others.  Pat spent most of her time raising funds for the PINK PARTY.  She was either gathering gifts, asking for help from her friends and family or constantly thinking of items that she saw on TV or in a magazine that might be a good item for the raffles.
It is for Pat’s dedication, leadership and love that we have renamed the event in her honor.

In order to make this years event a most special tribute, it will take a lot of work from a lot of people.  It will never be the same again without Pat, but we MUST carry on in her honor.  We must make this event something that she will continue to be proud of.

Anyone who would like to be part of the Pat’s Pink Party Committee is asked to join us for our first meeting, which will take place on the one month anniversary of Pat’s passing.

We’re Tickled PINK to have you back with us to FIGHT Breast Cancer!

Thanks for visiting the Fillmore Cares site to learn about our upcoming Breast Cancer Fundraiser.

It’s hard to believe that this is our 8th annual event already.  It has been a pleasure watching it grow over the years to become one of the most successful events of it’s kind in the entire borough.  Neighbors, friends and businesses all seem to find it easy to rally behind a great cause, and it’s proof as we have broken all records last year and raised $28,000 that was distributed to Brooklyn based organizations that help through education and research.  To date we have raised over 80,000 and this year we are shooting to bring it over $100K.

This year, we are looking to find some more local beneficiaries of the funds that we raise and we will considering giving a local award out to a deserving nominee that comes from within our community.  If we can make a major difference in someone’s life that’s challenged with this disease, it would make us all feel great.

Now to the details:
The event is being held at the amazing El Caribe Catering Hall on Strickland Avenue in Brooklyn.  The date is set for Thursday, October 23rd at 7PM.There will be a dinner, an amazing raffle night with hundreds of amazing gifts and a Chinese auction.  There will also be a few added surprises this year to help make the event even more special to attend and more rewarding as we feel great about helping the cause.

Tickets are only $75.00 and is what some consider to be the BEST BARGAIN VALUE IN TOWN!

Donate to the cause Pat championed

patreinhardt copyEveryone at Fillmore Cares, along with the entirety of Brooklyn, mourns the loss of our matriarch, Pat Reinhardt. For over a decade, she fought the brave fight until- ultimately- losing her battle in the late afternoon of May 27, 2015.

All who knew her will undoubtedly remember her tenacious spirit, her incomparable work ethic, and the outright kindness of her soul. She cared, unconditionally, for all of those around her. Even when feeling weak late last year, she never gave up the fight to make the Fillmore Cares Pink Party the most successful it has ever been to date.

We all loved Pat- almost as much as she loved all of us. In honor of her vision and her legacy, we are renaming the annual Pink Party to include her name: Pat’s Pink Party. It is our hope that you will spare a few dollars to contribute towards the ongoing research that aims to defeat the silent enemy that took Pat and so many others. You can donate by clicking the button below. We also hope that you’ll check back with us for this year’s Pat’s Pink Party.

Pat’s smile, ever present, was the perfect combination of wisdom, humor, and benevolence. May she remain an everlasting testament to the joys that life can bring and the compassion that allows us to see its true meaning. May she, too, forever rest in peace.



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!
