To best support this cause, we found a clear partner in Bright Pink – the only national non-profit organization focusing on prevention and early detection.
Through our annual fundraising event, and the generous contributions of our guests, we’ll be able to make a difference sooner.
In February 2005, our first party raised $35,000!
In February 2004, Carrie Kenney lost her seven-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 35. One year later, her cousin, Jodi Fyfe gathered a group of close friends and colleagues to start Tickled Pink Chicago in honor of Carrie. Carrie was a fun-loving, young woman who was diagnosed at the age of 27.
After Carrie’s death at the tragically young age of 35, Jodi was determined to keep her cousin’s fun-loving spirit alive. Jodi began by forming a team for a 2004 breast cancer walk but she wanted to find another way to remember the vibrant, fun-loving person who inspired her so much.
