Pink Tie Guys (PTGs) are community leaders from the corporate and philanthropic sector, comprised of corporate executives, business owners, professional athletes, physicians and others. These men act as community advocates for women’s health issues and to share Komen Charlotte’s mission with the Charlotte region.

Each year, Komen Charlotte invites a group of eight men to be involved, to represent the 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Our 2018 group will be announced in early 2018!


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
