Pink Tie Guys (PTGs) are community leaders from the corporate and philanthropic sector, comprised of corporate executives, business owners, professional athletes, physicians and others representing the community they love.  Each year, for the past five years, Komen Charlotte has invited a group of 8 men to be involved, and we are so appreciative of the partnerships of this special team of men in supporting the mission to end breast cancer forever. If you have interest in a 2018 PTGs partnership or questions on how you can support our PTGs in their efforts to provide awareness and raise funds, please send your inquiry to info@komencharlotte.org.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A PINK TIE GUY 

Serve your community with compassion, promote awareness of the life-saving programs Komen Charlotte funds, and help make it possible to assist those who face a breast cancer diagnosis.

Meet other Pink Tie Guys (former and present) and network with like-minded leaders.

Support Komen Charlotte by attending signature events including Race for the Cure, Laugh for the Cure, Komen Research Luncheon and Pink Sunday.

Fundraising is vital to Komen’s ability to provide life-saving services to thousands every year. Pink Tie Guys make a difference by embracing your role in bringing financial resources to help fight against breast cancer.

Pledge to make a difference by wearing your pink tie and sparking conversations about breast health, the disparities in our region and the power and methods we actually have to affect change.

Inspire involvement within the community and within your organization, encouraging others to give that which cannot be measured.

Speak out in your community, leveraging prominent relationships with local influential leaders and media contacts about the importance of finding the cures to end breast cancer.

Empower other men to pay attention to women’s health issues and be aware of their own risks for breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed in her lifetime and 1 in 1,000 men will also be diagnosed.

Share the Komen Charlotte vision of a world without breast cancer
