Pink Tie Guys Picture2.jpg

The Pink Tie Guys is a Susan G. Komen Los Angeles non‐traditional support group program for the significant others of those battling cancer. On Monday, October 15, these co‐survivors will gather together in an intimate setting to support each other in a natural, low‐pressure environment while watching the Monday Night Football game (San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers).

The title of “Pink Tie Guy” can be attributed to breast cancer co‐survivors, loved ones of those who have lost their battles to the disease and prominent business leaders who provide year‐round fundraising support and draw attention to the mission and critical work of Susan G. Komen.

Contact Eddie Hernandez at ehernandez@komenlacounty.org for more information.





Friday, October 19th is National Mammography Day! There will be a mobile mammography coach on-site conducting free screenings starting Friday, October 19th through Sunday, October 21st.
