Tickled Pink celebrated their 7th anniversary bash with more than 900 people in attendance, a record breaking crowd! Hosted by the newly formed Junior Auxiliary Board, this party brought together the city's hip, young and young-at-heart to benefit the Y-Me Breast Cancer Organization.
In 2005 founder Jodi Fyfe created this event as a way to honor the memory of her cousin, Carrie Kenney, who lost her seven year battle with breast cancer at the age of 35. Kenney's fun-loving spirit was evident on this night as the guests danced to The Hat Guys as well as Fig Media's DJ Surami amid a sea of pink boas.
Delectable hors d'oeuvres were donated by some of our town's favorite hotspots and included Paramount Events, Purple Pig, Heaven on Seven, Terzo Piano, Bon Appetit, Phoebe's Desserts, Homerun Pizza and Rivers Casino, along with sushi from Macku.
Celebrity bartenders served up the evening's signature cocktail, the Tickled Pink-tini, and included Dina Blair, Randi Belisomo, Erin McElroy, Frank Holland, Jae Miller, Susan Carlson, Dana Kozlov, Mike Puccinelli, Susanna Song, Derrick Young, Stefan Holt, Lauren Jiggetts, Natalie Martinez, Alex Perez, Anthony Ponce, Alicia Roman, Cheryl Scott, Jessica Zweig, Joran Thompson, Emily Liftman, Marissa Conrad, Kevin Aeh, Lauren Capobianco, Mark Bieganski, Matt De La Pena, Kori Chambers, Anna Davlantes, Tammie Souza, Mike Tobin, Cindy Chiang, Ernie Halvorsen, Gina Ferraro, Trent Erikson, Andrea Metcalf, Anthony Rinehart, Nicole Jorvix, Jason Goff, James Rhine, Orlando Saez, John Garcia and Savannah B. Van Cartier. The event was hosted by Mich Mag's Susanna Negovan, who had met her husband Tom at a Tickled Pink party years before.
Y-Me is the only place in the world where someone touched by breast cancer can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and talk to a breast cancer survivor and be understood in 150 differerent languages. To date, Tickled Pink has contributed more than $800,000 to Y-Me. (www.Y-Me.org)
