Sponsored by HomeBuyingTips.com, Contour Mortgage and Steiner Sports, the 9th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night at Ducks Stadium will unite 18 local breast cancer coalitions in the fight against breast cancer on Long Island.

Breast Cancer Awareness has been gaining momentum, locally, over the past few years. This insidious disease is disproportionately prevalent here on Long Island, and is 18% higher than the rest of the nation. So it makes sense that Long Island has a plethora of organizations whose mission is to help find a cure as well as provide assistance and information for those about the dreaded disease.

Founded on the premise that breast cancer is an all too familiar threat on Long Island, impacting about everyone in one way or another, PinkTie.org’s vision is to find creative ways to bring their vast real estate network together, in support of education and research for the for the fight against breast cancer. In order to do this, PinkTie.org aligns their efforts with charities that make the most direct impact on Long Island, and acts as a vessel to raise funds and awareness for these said charities. Hence, the correlation between PinkTie.org and Breast Cancer Awareness Night at Ducks Stadium was a natural fit.

Every year, the Ducks put together one night that is a can’t-miss at the Duck Pond to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness. First, there are the giveaway items for fans (Commemorative T-Shirts to the first 1,500 and Commemorative Pamphlets to the first 5,000). Next, those in attendance will be able to stop by several tables on the main concourse featuring representatives from various Breast Cancer Awareness organizations around Long Island.

Be sure to stop by Steiner Sports’ silent auction, which will be raising additional funds for the participating charities, while featuring one-of-a-kind sports memorabilia signed by your favorite athletes.

Additionally, in continuing their commitment to the community, Contour Mortgage will deduct $1,000 towards the closing costs of any mortgage as a thank you for bringing awareness to Breast Cancer on Long Island.
