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!

Pats Pink Party Organizational Meeting to be held one month after Pat Reinhardts passing

FillmoreCares is having the first organizational meeting for Pat’s Pink Party on June 26th, 2015 at Fillmore Real Estate Headquarters located at 2990 Avenue U in Brooklyn, NY.
The meeting will begin promptly at 12 Noon and will last until 1:30, and Pizza will be served during the meeting.
“The purpose of this meeting,”stated John Reinhardt, “is to gather as many ideas as possible from people who have been involved in fundraising events in order to create the foundation for a most successful event in honor of Pat!”
Everyone who cares is invited to attend and share their thoughts and ideas for the event.  Some of the issues that will be discussed will be:
1) Confirmation of tentative date – October 22nd, 2015 and venue El Caribe
2) Brainstorm about the format of the event – Raffle Night or Entertainment, or both or perhaps something different. This should be interesting.
3) Set Goals for the number of prizes in each category, and review categories and prizes from last year to determine what worked best and what we could do without.
4) Think of HOT ITEMS from other raffles to get for our event.  Is it still iPads, computers, and TV’s or is there something else out there?
5) Create committees to handle different tasks of the event.
-Gift Certificates – Go and get certificates from each and every restaurant possible
-Small Gifts and Prizes – Get the word out to collect NEW gifts from our friends and sphere
-Major Gifts – Identify what major gifts we would like and then try to get a sponsor to support each major gift
-Corporate Contributions and Sponsorships – Sometimes we can get major cash contributions that help to underwrite the event, the booze at the event, or the entertainment.
-Entertainment/Program – Decides what type of music, should there be dancing like a party or just raffles.  What games should be included in the evening program.
-Wrapping Committee – Creates a team that can get the job done quickly and efficiently.  This team will also be responsible for collecting gifts and grouping them into baskets.
-Marketing and Advertising– If you’re creative and have experience here, we could use your help.  We would like to add a public relations and social media aspect this year to grow the event.
6) Try to orchestrate committee meetings and select committee chairpersons.
7) Think of other people that we would like to ask to assist us on the PINK TEAM or on a committee.  Let’s take a moment to think of the great talent in the area.
8) Create a community liaison list that consists of leaders in each of the major organizations in the area.  Let’s get schools, community boards, clubs and other organizations to step up.
9) The Vision: Summarize what we think the event will look like after the influence of the attendees of the organizational meeting and create to do list so we can solidify by next meeting.
10) When should next meeting be?

There will be an opportunity for those who cannot make this meeting to attend future meetings; but, if you can make a meeting..this one would be the most important.
Thank you for considering to be a part of our effort in honoring Pat and making this years Pink Party the best one ever!

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.
June 26th at 12 Noon
Fillmore Headquarters

Your assistance and ideas are appreciated and welcomed.If you can’t make this event, please let us know your thoughts by calling our chairperson Ann MacBride at 718-907-1149 or by emailing: patspinkparty@fillmore.com
