Awareness Fundraising Events
Our largest fundraising events of the year are the Komen Orange County Pink Tie Ball and the MORE THAN PINK Walk. Both offer great opportunities for corporations and individuals to give via an in-kind gift, participation and donation.
The Komen Orange County Pink Tie Ball is held every Spring. The Ball is Komen’s annual gala honoring seven men in the community who are helping advance the Komen mission of saving lives and ending breast cancer forever. The evening features silent and live auctions full of fabulous experiences, trips and excursions, a wine pull and an exquisite opportunity drawing. The Pink Tie Ball is able to raise vital funds by working with individual donors and corporations to help with sponsorship, in-kind gifts, table and individual ticket sales, and participation in our day-of-event giving opportunities.
The 2019 Komen Orange County Pink Tie Ball will be held at City National Grove of Anaheim on Saturday, May 11, 2019. For more information, visit www.pinktieball.org.
The Susan G. Komen® MORE THAN PINK Orange County WALK is one of the largest walk event raising funds for vital breast health care, education, awareness and research. Thousands of people gather at Fashion Island in Newport Beach on the fourth Sunday of September each year to honor and celebrate breast cancer survivors and remember those we’ve lost. The MORE THAN PINK WALK is also a great opportunity to start a Team with friends and family and participate in a fun, healthy activity.
Funds are raised by working with corporate sponsors, individual donors, securing in-kind gifts for fundraising awards, individual and team participation through registration and support from donors giving to individual and team fundraising goals. Funds raised at the MORE THAN PINK WALK help us continue our work in the community giving quality access to breast health care and research.
This year’s WALK will be held on Sunday, September 22, 2019.
