The town will be painted pink for the seventh time on February 24 to raise funds for Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization.
Friday, Feb. 24, 2012
7pm – 12am
The renowned Tickled Pink is hosted by Jodi Fyfe who began a partnership with the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization in 2004, and each year has taken new strides to raise money for the charity.
At the event, guests walk the pink carpet and mix and mingle with celebrity guests. Party-goers will also have the opportunity to dine on hors d’oeuvres and drinks (the Tickled Pink-tini!) As always, Tickled Pink’s dance floor will be the place to be seen.

About Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization
Carrie was a fun-loving, young woman who was diagnosed at the age of 27 and looked to Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization for information. She found answers to her questions but also found unwavering support from women who had also battled breast cancer and could relate to her experience first hand.
After Carrie‘s death, Jodi was determined to make a contribution to the organization that had given so much to her cousin when she needed it most. Jodi began by forming a team for the 2004 Y-Me race but she wanted to find another way to remember the vibrant, fun-loving person who inspired her so much…Tickled Pink Chicago was born! In February 2005, Tickled Pink Chicago threw its first party and raised $35,000! The party and team of individuals who come together to ensure no one has to face breast cancer alone continues to grow year after year.
