CHICAGO, IL — February 5, 2020 — Tickled Pink, one of Chicago's most anticipated charity events, returns this year for its 15th annual celebration on Friday, February 28, 2020 at Rockwell on the River ( 3057 N Rockwell St, Chicago IL 60618 ). The event benefits Bright Pink, the only national non-profit organization focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. Tickled Pink has donated more than $2.3 million since its inception and continues to not only raise funds, but drive awareness to a cause near and dear to founder Jodi Fyfe, CEO and Founder of The Paramount Group Chicago.
Fyfe started the annual fundraising event after her cousin Carrie Kenny passed away from breast cancer at the young age of 35. Fyfe has kept her cousin's memory alive through Tickled Pink, which gives everyone a night to celebrate Kenny and the lives of loved ones who are currently fighting, or whom we have lost. The event has continued to grow in size and scope, including a robust group of both longtime supporters and the addition of nearly three dozen up and coming professional women and men who have joined the Tickled Pink planning committee in the past year.
"It is wonderful to look back on the past 15 years and see how far we've come in raising awareness and funds for the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer," said Fyfe. "We have an outstanding group of talented people who have come together to make our 15th year the best yet!"
The celebratory evening begins at 8:00 p.m. with chef stations from Chicago's best restaurants, music, dancing, cocktails, an incredible silent auction and more! This year, Tickled Pink will be bringing back favorites such as The Chicago Players, Fig Media and Chicago Firefighters. Guests can sip on delicious cocktails and wine as well as enjoy an interactive cocktail station from the team at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits. In addition to a variety of wine and spirits, Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits will have a dedicated Rosé Bar with still, sparkling and a Rosé spritz! Partygoers will be able to indulge in savory and sweet bites from some of the city's best restaurants including Barrio, City Mouse, Eden, Gene & Georgetti, Labriola, Stan's Donuts, Pretty Cool Ice Cream and more.
