CHI-lebrity Party Pick: Tickled Pink's Charity Bash

CHI-lebrity Party Pick: Tickled Pink's Charity Bash

CHI-lebrity was there last year and now, it’s time for the best charity event of the season once again!

For the 7th year in a row, Chicago will be pretty pink for an amazing cause on Friday February 24th as Tickled Pink celebrates its Annual Charity Bash benefitting Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization.

Join hundreds of the city’s most trendy and influential on the pink carpet at the River East Art Center (435 E. Illinois) from 7PM-12AM as guests mingle with local CHI-lebrities like special guest MC Susanna Negovan, Editor-in-Chief of Michigan Avenue Magazine. Indulge in deliciously crafted cocktails (including the famous Tickled Pink-tini!), while you enjoy savory food selections and dance the night away.

Who wouldn’t love hors d’oeuvres by Paramount Events, Purple Pig, Heaven on Seven, Terzo Piano, Bon Appetite and Rivers Casino, along with sushi from Macku plus late night munchies by many more of Chicago’s favorite restaurants, including Homerun Inn Pizza. Yum!

Partygoers will also have the opportunity to schmooze with more CHI-lebrities who will serve as guest bartenders and help fundraise at the event. As always, Tickled Pink’s dance floor will be the place to be seen with The Hat Guys and the sounds of DJ Surami from Fig Media keeping the crowd going all night long. Plus, all attendees have the chance to win big with exciting raffle packages such as restaurant dining for a year (a new restaurant a month) and the ultimate guys and girls’ night out.
