I knew I had to come up with a way to help others who were affected or might become affected by this devastating disease.

NAPW honors Randa Roberts as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional Women is a powerfully vibrant networking community with over 600,000 members and nearly 400 Local Chapters.
“I started my company for multiple reasons, mainly because both my grandmothers battled with and died of breast cancer. Because of them, I’ve always been involved with organizations that support breast cancer research,” says Ms. Roberts. "I am also one of four girls in my family and statistically one of us will be diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew I had to come up with a way to help others who were affected or might become affected by this devastating disease.”
Deciding to focus on supporting breast cancer research and awareness, last August, Ms. Roberts launched ThinkPinkTickets.com. The online ticket brokerage firm donates 5% of all ticket sales to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization that was started by Evelyn Lauder in 1993. From sporting events, musical and theatrical performances to live concerts, even hotel and motel accommodations, Think PinkTickets.com offers consumers unlimited access to tickets “anywhere, anytime” around the country and all over the world.
Tickets purchased through ThinkPinkTickets.com are 3% less than most other online sites, says Ms. Roberts, and consumers are never charged a convenience fee. “Our mission is ‘Putting breast cancer out-of-business one ticket at a time,’” says Ms. Roberts. “Everyone can make a difference when they purchase a ticket from us. There is hardly a person out there who hasn’t been touched by breast cancer. We are really trying to make an impact!”
NAPW provides an exclusive networking forum to professional women where they can aspire, connect, learn and achieve.
