Red carpet, move aside. Tickled Pink for Bright Pink rolled out its rosy-hued version for more than 900 of Chicago’s finest Feb. 8 — and members of the social scene responded, donning their best pink attire in honor of the occasion. At the 8th annual event, held at River East Art Center (435 E. Illinois), guests sipped festive “pink-tinis,” feasted on local fare from Paramount Events, Glazed & Infused, Heaven on Seven and Purple Pig and cut a rug to music from The Hat Guys and DJ Hafeez Sarumi from Fig Media. More than $50,000 was raised to benefit Bright Pink’s mission to offer breast and ovarian cancer education and early detection to young women.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
