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
Pat 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.
