Tickled Pink Celebrates 7th Anniversary
Charity Bash on February 24 Makes a Cold February Night
Sizzle at the River East Art Center.
The town was painted pink for the seventh time on February 24 for Chicago's
hottest party for a great cause: Tickled Pink, benefitting Y-ME National Breast
Cancer Organization. Regarded as one of Chicago's best charity events,
Tickled Pink, hosted by the newly-formed Y-ME Auxiliary Board, brought
together the city's hip, young and young-at-heart for a celebration worthy of any
V.I.P, all to ensure no one faces breast cancer alone. This year Tickled Pink
celebrates its seventh anniversary and continues to grow, bringing Chicagoans
together in a fun and fashionable way to help a worthy cause.
"Due to the popularity of Tickled Pink we needed a larger venue with a bigger
dance floor," said Jodi Fyfe, Tickled Pink event chair and Y-ME National Breast
Cancer Organization board member. "Tickled Pink has really become a
tradition in our city and we are well on our way to raise a million dollars for
Y-ME by 2013."
At the event, guests walked the pink carpet, siped on delicious cocktails and
top shelf open bar (including the famous Tickled Pink-tini!) and dine on hors
d'oeuvres by Paramount Events, Purple Pig, Heaven on Seven, Terzo Piano
and Bon Appetite, along with sushi from Macku plus late night munchies by
many more of Chicago's favorite restaurants, including Homerun Inn Pizza.
Partygoers had the opportunity to schmooze with Chicago celebrities who
served as guest bartenders and help fundraise at the event. As always, Tickled
Pink's dance floor was the place to be seen with the sounds of DJs from Fig
Media keeping the crowd dancing all night long!
