The Family-Friendly event featured Jim Leyritz, a two-time World Series winner and retired New York Yankee. Jim chatted with clients and signed baseballs for fans throughout the event. Jim later shared, “UBCF does such meaningful and important work. It was an honor to be a part of the Pink Bag Event.” Jim continued, "I look forward to partnering with UBCF again in the future to help continue to educate and eradicate the devastating effects of cancer which touch so many families today."

Keeping the energy high all day long was a DJ from 106.1 BLI and the band, Society Road, playing live music during the afternoon. Fantastic performing artists engaged the crowd, including live performances by Caterina Rago, Darell Thorne, Amelia Heintzelman and Veronika Rabinovich.

Many clients serviced during the event shared kind words of gratitude, including Ms. Denise, “Thank you so much for having me at the Pink Bag Event. It was great speaking with the people at the tables and gathering information to help me through breast cancer. Thank you for the free swag and meeting Jim Leyritz from the Yankees too!”

UBCF’s Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni shared, “This event was by far our largest impact in terms of clients serviced. Knowing that we helped educate and support those in need makes all the hard work worth it.” Stephanie added, “We hope Barclays Center and the Brooklyn Nets felt the value of UBCF’s impact on the community and we look forward to the possibility of future endeavors.”
