Almost three thousand Long Islanders attended the 4th Annual PinkTie.org Event at the Crest Hollow Country Club. Pink Tie was founded on the idea of bringing sports, networking and charity together; creating an atmosphere of excitement where people can meet and do business all the while coming together for a great cause.
After the success of their first two annual events, Pink Tie decided to launch a new initiative, PinkTie1000. PinkTie1000 is a 100% pass through organization, with the mission to compel 1,000 professionals to commit to contributing $100/quarter ($400 per year). In turn they will collectively cut a $100,000 check to local charities each quarter.
PinkTie1000’s core mission is to benefit local organizations, nationwide, in the communities that they serve. Pinktie 1000 is predominately volunteer with zero-to-minimal overhead expenses and administrative fees.
This year's beneficiary is Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation. The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation has been recognized as the premier organization dedicated to research, education, fellowship and patient care in the fields of oncology and hematology in the Long Island/Tri-State area. The Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation is committed to the ultimate goal of eradicating cancer through the research programs it supports. But we also recognize that cancer has a very human face. As a result, 40% of the Foundation's budget is dedicated to patient care at our four Don Monti Cancer Centers, including the Don Monti Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Unit at North Shore University Hospital.

This year musical performance featured Michael DelGuidice & Big Shot – celebrating the Music of Billy Joel. Past PinkTie.org Events have included sports athletes Jim Leyritz, Dwight "Doc" Gooden, Darryl Strawberry, Walter “Clyde” Frazier, Otis “OJ” Anderson, Joe Klecko, Renaldo Snipes, Greg Buttle, Bobby Nystrom, Wesley Walker, Kevin Plawecki, Cecil Fielder, Jeff Beukeboom, Eric Anderson, Ed Kranepool, Buddy Harrelson, Erik Coleman, Brent Sopel and Gary Sheffield
During the event I was fortunate to speak to Co-founder Rich Cave of Pinktie.org
PinkTie.org has become the backbone of Long Island’s fastest-growing philanthropy movement – a collaborative “go-giving” effort uniting Long Island's socially conscious professionals to make a difference in their community. Last year’s Event raised $300,000 for the Don Monti Memorial Research Foundation and hosted to over 2000 guests. This year attendance is expected to once again raise a monumental amount of funds for the Don Monti Foundation, the leader in cancer research on Long Island for over 40 years. - 100% of funds raised will go to the cancer cause!
