About Tickled Pink
  • Our Mission

    Tickled Pink supports those impacted by cancer, fostering hope and resilience through community.


    In alignment with our mission, we collaborate with non-profit organizations dedicated to raising awareness and offering support to individuals affected by cancer. Our annual fundraising event is a powerful platform for achieving this goal. The generous contributions of our community participants, donors, and attendees enable us to create a significant and lasting impact in the lives of those touched by cancer. 


    As we embark on our 16th fundraiser on Friday, February 16th, 2024, from 7 pm – 12 am at Rockwell on the River in Chicago, we proudly unite to support Twist Out Cancer, a nonprofit organization providing psychosocial support to previvors, survivors & caregivers through creative arts programming, which serves as a mechanism for healing.

  • Our Story

    Since our first event in February 2005, we have raised over $2.3 million for organizations dedicated to cancer prevention, support, and services.


    In February 2004, the world lost a vibrant soul when Carrie Kenney succumbed to her seven-year battle with breast cancer at the tender age of 35. Determined to immortalize Carrie’s vivacity, her cousin Jodi Fyfe took the initiative a year later to rally a close-knit group of friends and colleagues. Thus, Tickled Pink Chicago was born, a heartfelt tribute to a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27, and a commitment to preserving Carrie’s fun-loving spirit and legacy beyond the realms of grief.


    Tickled Pink Chicago has evolved into more than just an annual event; it has become a symbol of hope, resilience, and community support in the heart of Chicago. Founded in 2005 by Jodi Fyfe as a tribute to her late cousin, the event has grown exponentially, leaving an indelible mark on the fight against cancer. Over the years, Tickled Pink has raised over two million dollars, emerging as a formidable force of good. This remarkable success underscores the community’s commitment to making a tangible impact on the lives of those affected by cancer. As we reflect on our journey, we take pride in the significant milestones achieved and look forward to continuing our mission of providing support, spreading awareness, and fostering a sense of unity in the face of adversity.
