On Friday, February 20, 2015, Tickled Pink for Bright Pink celebrated their 10 year anniversary. The fun and fabulous event took place Morgan Manufacturing in downtown Chicago. With 50 top Chicago restaurants cooking up their finest dishes at this party, you were bound to find a great variety of treats that would make your taste buds dance. Some of the restaurants included Yum Cha, Kaiser Tiger, Davanti, Glazed and Infused and more. The evening also included an open bar and live music by the Chicago Players.

This year, over 1,200 guests came out to support this fantastic cause. Tickled Pink ended up raising $66,000 for Bright Pink that evening making this another successful year for the event.

Tickled Pink was inspired by Jodi Fyfe’s cousin, Carrie Kenny. Carrie lost her 7 year battle to breast cancer at the young age of 35. A year after Carrie passed away, Jodi created this event in her honor.

Bright Pink is a non-profit organization that focuses on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women while providing support for those at high-risk. They are the only non-profit to focus on this.
