A pink tie is not just a fashion statement – it’s a commitment to the fight against breast cancer. The Pink Tie Guy program seeks to engage Northeast Ohio’s leading men to further support the work being done to fight breast cancer and bring a male voice to the urgency of finding the cures. Through great camaraderie, great cocktails and great food we can come together for a great cause.

The premise is simple:

You earn your exclusive Pink Tie Guy necktie, and your place among Northeast Ohio’s pacesetters, by donating $1,008 to Komen Northeast Ohio. The amount signifies that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
