PinkTie.org | Real Estate Professionals Networking for a Cure, was founded by Mike Cave, CEO of 1st Equity Title & Closing Services, on the premise that Breast Cancer is an all too familiar threat on Long Island, impacting just about everyone in one way or another.
We realize that we in the real estate community could be doing a lot more to help put an end to this insidious disease, which is disproportionately prevalent here on the Island.
The vision was to find creative ways to bring our vast real estate network together, in support of education and research for the fight against breast cancer.
In addition to standard fundraising events, PinkTie.org uses the men’s fashion accessory to attract funds for FACT (Find A Cure Today) Breast Cancer Foundation, with sports celebrity-autographed neckties.
The goal is to hold upscale networking events within the real estate community, where we can synergize our vast network with your company and provide exposure to other professionals in this dynamic industry, and work together to raise funds for various foundations who support research and education, for diseases which are prevalent here on Long Island.
The first of these causes being breast cancer, FACT (Find A Cure Today) Breast Cancer Foundation was chosen as our beneficiary, as it is a 100% charitable organization; in other words, every single penny raised goes towards finding a cure for breast cancer.
Through strategic partnerships, sponsorships, ticket sales, as well as silent and live auctions, we aim to make an impact for the thousands affected by breast cancer in our community. We work, live and play on Long Island, and now we want to give back. With your help, we are certain we can make great strides.
