8th Annual Pink Tie Fireman's Ball

A quick update from the Schaumburg Firefighters Fighting Cancer Committee:

As many people can safely assume, the April 30th date for the Pink Tie Ball had to be moved, yet again. Sadly, this is something that is out of our control, and simply had to be done on account of state mandates, as well as safety precautions.  However, we truly believe that we are approaching the "COVID finish line" and we are extremely optimistic for a much more normal future, that allows for large scale cancer fundraising events.  

More importantly, we wanted to share some great news, since we are feeling confident that this will be the final DATE CHANGE for the 8th Annual: Pink Tie Ball we secured a sought-after day this fall.  With the help and support of our very own Schaumburg Marriott, we were able to secure October 1st, 2021(pending fall mandates of course), same time same place. And, as our devoted guests, that have attended year after year, we personally want to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.  Changing the date a third time was not our original intention, but we feel fortunate to have the ability to not have to cancel our cancer fundraising completely, but rather push through to October 1st, 2021.  Hopefully by the fall our community and our nation has had some time to heal, focus on getting back to normal and come out stronger than ever before.  We have never considered giving up on something this important to so many people, and the Schaumburg Firefighters Fighting Cancer are not going to give up now.  Instead, when faced with adversity, we will continue to stay focused and impassioned on the incredible, uplifting event and we have simply moved it again to this upcoming October 1st, 2021(same time, same place)!  

With all that being said, we truly hope that everyone that has bought tickets will continue the fight with us in the fall, and will not give up hope, but rather join us and make this the best year yet.  More importantly, if anyone has bought tickets for the original April 4th, 2020 date and would like a refund, for any reason at all, we will happily refund your money.  We completely understand that these are trying times and would never want to put any of our trusted and loyal guests in a financially precarious situation. Please contact pinktieball4092@gmail.com at any time, day or night to initiate a refund, it is our pleasure as we completely understand the seriousness of this situation.

  The Schaumburg Fire Fighters have taken notice to the fact that cancer has proven to be one of the world’s largest epidemics, affecting both men and women of all ages.  And, since it is our goal, as firefighters to help people, both on and off the job, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 8th Annual: Pink Tie Firemen’s Ball on October 1st, 2021. The Schaumburg Firefighters Fighting Cancer ask for your presence, your financial support or a simple donation of goods could greatly help us raise funds, funds that will transform the lives of so many people, in so many different ways.

The SPFFA Benevolent Association/Schaumburg Firefighters Fighting Cancer Fundraising Committee would like to ask you or your business for support, in the form of a donation by any means necessary, in our efforts to raise money and awareness for the fight against Cancer. One hundred percent of the net proceeds raised from the Pink Tie Ball 2021 efforts will be donated to support the fight against cancer, by means of The National Cancer Research Institute, The Michael Solberg Foundation, and The Northwest Community Hospital Cancer Center.
