Successful Pink Tie Affair
WOW! The Pink Tie Affair was successful beyond our hopes and dreams. When we started planning, we were hoping to sell 100 tickets, so we are thrilled to report we nearly doubled our goal - 192 tickets sold! Guests were greeted by our clown on stilts, Daniel Fernandez. Once inside, attendees took photographs with our special guest, Parker, from the Fresno Grizzlies! Attendees also socialized, danced and took even more photographs in our photo booth.
TorNino’s served our guests top sirloin steak, lemon pepper chicken and eggplant parmesan. Our guests listened to music played by Fun Put to Music DJ Service while enjoying their meals.
We were fortunate to obtain so many amazing donations. About 50 items were in our silent auction, 10 in the live auction and 30 in the dessert auction. Our live auction donations came from the Scroggin family; BC Jewelz; Roger Rocka’sDinner Theater; the Ames family; The Advance Group; No Limits Limousine; Milla Vineyards; Wonder Valley Ranch; Treva Lee, D.D.S; Chef Darlene Martin; Disneyland; Fresno County Federal Credit Union; Fancy Pants Boudoir Photography; Feel Like a Woman; and, Sheriff Mims.
Our amazing auctioneer, George Fisher, teamed with our very own Oscar Haynes to keep our auction fun and entertaining! Our 50/50 drawing was also a huge success - we split the earnings with the lucky winner of the drawing, Sue Gonsalves.
None of this would have been possible without our gracious sponsors: the Fresno Bee; Micon Real Estate; Feel Like a Woman; Women’s Imaging Specialists in Healthcare; Bank of America/Merrill Lynch; and, Blake Scott, D.D.S. and Lindsey Scott, D.D.S, Inc., in memory of Lee Caudill and Edith Webber, a survivor at age 92.
And, of course, a very special thank you to all the Sisterhood of Survivors volunteers who worked tirelessly on coordinating the event, creating gift baskets, obtaining donations, and promoting the event. Your support was unwavering!
Lastly, thank you to all of those that supported, participated, and attended The Pink Tie Affair. The event was a success because of you and your generous contributions!
