In 2013, the Pink Tie committee members decided they wanted to donate the money to more than one place, to ensure it helped fight all kinds of cancer. So, the Schaumburg firefighters split the funds between Alexian Brother's Breast Cancer Ambassadors and the American Cancer Society Research Foundation.

Schaumburg firefighters also vowed to make the Pink Tie Ball an annual event, open to the public.
