PinkTie1000 Spokesman

Jim will be the spokesperson for the firm’s charity organization PinkTie.org | Business Professionals Networking for a Cause. Pink Tie was founded on the idea of bringing sports, networking and charity together; creating an atmosphere of excitement where people can meet and do business all the while coming together for a great cause. There is no one better to promote these ideals than Jim Leyritz – a real homerun for the 1st Equity / Pink Tie family!

  • Why PinkTie?
    “I have been in it from the beginning. From the very first year. I think that any organization that wants to help people or help fund research for cancer on Long Island when I think that is one of our biggest problems, I think that is something that touches every single one of us, sadly in some way, is something that I want to support.”

  • “PinkTie is an organization that is doing it for everybody, I think that’s a great thing and I like to be involved with things like that.” My sister, my mother are cancer survivors, I am blessed with that. It is a very crippling disease for a lot of people and I think everybody in this United States or this world have had someone affected by cancer, so it’s a good thing to come out and fight for that.”
