Saturday, October 27th, marked the largest Pink Tie Affair in Denver, welcoming more than 950 people to the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel for dinner, dancing and other activities focused on providing entertainment with a cause. This year’s Pink Tie Affair raised more money than it ever has in the past for Denver Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, bringing $420,000 to the affiliate to provide breast cancer screening, treatment and support services to individuals in need across Colorado.
At the event, Joan Davids was honored with the 5th Annual Komen Denver Ambassador Award, which is given to individuals that support the Affiliate through innovative and creative action. Joan has served as the chairwoman of the Romp to Stomp Out Breast Cancer 5k Snowshoeing event in Summit County, Colorado. The event has raised more than $875,000 for Komen Denver over the past year, a feat that would not have been possible without Joan’s diligence and commitment to the event.
The event also honored the Pink Tie Guys, including Al Duran, Andrés Chaparro, Pastor Chris Hill, Ed Novak, Don Johnson, Peter Kudla and Dr. Jerome Schroeder, whom help to engage men in the breast cancer movement and empower them to be involved. Event co-chairs, Arlene Mohler Johnson and Gayle Novak, have been deeply involved in finding a cure for breast cancer. Event emcees were 9News’ charismatic duo, Mark Koebrich & Kim Christiansen.
In addition to the dining, dancing and doing good, event attendees were able to bid on incredible auction items, including: two tickets to see a taping of Ellen; a trip to London; a pair of beautiful diamond hoop earrings; a Vespa Scooter; a diamond cocktail ring; spa packages; concert passes; and a Denver Broncos Once-in-a-Lifetime Game Package.
Whether or not you were able to attend this year’s event, mark your calendars for next year’s Pink Tie Affair. The date is set for Saturday, November 9th. This year’s event sold out, so be sure to get your tickets well in advance.
