Northern Nevada Susan G Komen to host Reno’s First Pink Tie Gala


In celebration of its 15th year anniversary, The Northern Nevada Susan G. Komen Affiliate will host the region’s first Pink Tie Gala. The event is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, 6 p.m. at The Grove.

Komen Northern Nevada has a variety of sponsorship options available for businesses, ranging in price and benefits. For sponsors to receive all available perks, they must be registered for the event by Wednesday, Jan. 16. The affiliate is also accepting donation items.

In addition to an upscale silent auction, Thomas Hayward (www.thomashaywardauctioneers.com) will lead attendees through an exclusive live auction. Hayward is a 25 year veteran auctioneer regularly featured on shows such as Spike TV’s “Auction Hunters” and SciFi’s “Hollywood Treasures.” He is donating his time to the Gala because he believes in the important work Komen does.

Individual tickets may be purchased for $125 per seat. Tickets for breast cancer survivors will be discounted to $100. Tables of 10 may also be purchased for a discounted rate of $100 per seat.

Seventy-five percent of the money raised as a result of the Pink Tie Gala will be used to support breast cancer prevention and awareness efforts in Northern Nevada and a portion of Northern California.

The Pink Tie Gala will take place at The Grove, 95 Foothill Road, Reno, Nev., Feb.9, from 6 p.m. until approximately 10 p.m.
