On Thursday, October 20th A Tie That Binds, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization I founded to honor my Mom’s battle with breast cancer celebrated our fourth official National Pink Tie Day. #NationalPinkTieDay is one day a year we ask men to make a bold statement of support by wearing a pink necktie or pink bow tie in honor of women in their life who have been touched by breast cancer.
THANK YOU for your notes of encouragement, your donations, your pictures, your tweets and your prayers!
Mom and I had the opportunity to spend the entire morning, noon, night, even past midnight together. The following is a snapshot of how we spent our time sharing with others how breast cancer changed our family for the better!
7:00 AM: Arrived at WFMY News 2 in Greensboro, North Carolina
7:30 AM: Drove from Greensboro to Charlotte, North Carolina
9:11 AM: Arrived at WBTV Channel 3. My youngest brother, Scott joined us at the station.
Ditra is the owner and founder of Ditra Creative Media a creative communications agency centered around creating public relations and marketing strategies that increase the visibility of both corporate and personal brands. The interviews with WFMY and WBTV were all orchestrated by Ditra’s skills, talent, and network. She knows what she is doing and makes it happen – we highly recommend her to your brand! Thank You Ditra!
A special thank you to the team at Men’s Wearhouse, specifically Kara (Marketing), Julie (Public Relations) and Austin (Store Management) for their teamwork and support. We are excited to be partnering with such an important and influential brand to men and look forward to what we can accomplish together in the future. Watch Out #NationalPinkTieDay2017
11:15 AM – 1:05 PM: Bunch, Blessings, Brussel Sprouts and Bow Ties
1:35 PM – 4:00 PM: Phone calls, emails, social and digital media correspondence and a 20-minute nap.
5:30 PM – 11:25 PM – A big thank you goes out to my father-in-law, James Whitley, as he arranged for Mom and I to have the “VIP” treatment at the 2016 North Carolina Music Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony held in Kannapolis, NC. We attended the VIP Cocktail Reception, were then shuttled to the 3+ hour Induction Ceremony where we were treated to live performances by The Avett Brothers, Band of Oz, Chairman of the Board, David Holt and The Carolina Chocolate Drops (Rhiannon Giddens, and Justin Robinson).
What a night! What a day!
1:15 AM – Home Sweet Home
