Joe Ruback, known to thousands of New York Giant fans as “License Plate Guy,” hosted a special Pink Fund Tailgate Party Sunday afternoon between at the Clarkstown Mall shopping center in New City. Ruback and co. raised more than $3,000 for The Pink Fund, a non-profit that financially assists local families struggling to cover typical cost-of-living expenses while a loved one goes through breast cancer treatment.
“I’m honored to be hosting this Pink Tailgate Party with the Pink Fund,” says Joe Ruback. “The financial assistance The Pink Fund gives families takes huge pressure off the patient, who in many cases, is the sole or primary breadwinner. And Clarkstown residents can feel good knowing that the funds we raise here at the Clarkstown Mall will go to help breast cancer patients in the immediate area.”
The following Clarkstown Plaza shops and other friends of License Plate Guy donated gift certificates and services that were raffled off to 35 lucky winners and some businesses even donated 10 percent of their sales during the tailgate:
