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!

YOU CAN HELP

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!
