THE TUTU PROJECT SPONSORS ARE TRANSFORMATIONAL AFFILIATES WHO HELP US EXTEND OUR REACH AND INFLUENCE IN DEEP, MEANINGFUL WAYS.
Without the financial, material, and physical support of our sponsors, we would not be able to serve and support the women and men valiantly enduring this disease.
We understand the incredible value that comes when we align with leaders across all industries to create positive change.
SUCCESS THROUGH PARTNERSHIP
The Tutu Project is committed to diverse engagement that yields dynamic return. Working with us could mean:
- Creating Dare2Tutu events within your community throughout the year
- Inviting Bob and Linda to speak about creativity and self-confidence at your next event
- Aligning our brand with yours in October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Corporate Sponsors commit to donating $5,000 of value as a starting point. Dreaming big, defining “value” and coming up with something entirely new is our next step!
WE’RE HONORED TO HAVE UNWAVERING SUPPORT FROM NOTABLE BRANDS BIG AND SMALL, INCLUDING:
OUR MAJOR SUPPORTER
Bloomingdale’s is the Major Supporter of The Carey Foundation. Throughout October, a portion of sales are donated to select breast cancer organizations. We still pinch ourselves every time we see Bob’s Ballerina on the most beautiful checkered floor in the world. In 2015, a #Dare2Tutu yoga class was also held in honor of women with breast cancer. Bloomingdales has donated six figures over the last two years to our foundation. No words are ever enough to express our gratitude to philanthropist Anne Keating and her staff.
“The Tutu Project has had an incredible and positive impact through their imagery, book and fundraising efforts,” said Jamie Walker, Jet Linx President. and CEO. “We were delighted to find unique ways to support their continuing development through our magazine and in our private terminals this year – and to offer a one-of-a-kind setting for the creation of a one-of-a-kind Tutu Project image!” Pilots, families, and even pets “Dared 2 Tutu”. The images were inspirational, and Jetlinx raised over $15,000 for our breast cancer foundation in 2015.

“He’s a grown man in a tutu, prancing around in the name of cancer,” she said. “I love that! Others might take offence, but I’m sure he’s doing more good than those who sit around being morose about things.” – Yvy Mix, Founder.
THE GIRLS OF REAL ESTATE
POWER, BEAUTY, AND KINDNESS
The Girls of Real Estate 10th Anniversary Breast Cancer Event was a huge success. Bob & Linda attended the event, held at Poplar Springs Inn Spa and Manor House Restaurant in Warrenton, VA, Over 70 attendees and contributors raised a little over their projected goal of $10,000 – $10,615!

A FAMILY BUSINESS
The Udderly SMooth® mascot and its entire family have been supporting our breast cancer fundraisers for over two years. A custom tutu was made so that the mascot could support our #Dare2Tutu initiative. In addition to fundraising, the Udderly team donates in-kind gifts for our events and other fundraisers.

This October, they plan to dare their entire community, and we expect nothing but success from this team!
