There are no words to properly express how horrific cancer can be. I have had more people in my life than I can count on my fingers affected by this cruel disease. Most of them have survived, and some have not. But it’s because of organizations like Chicago-based Tickled Pink and Bright Pink that more people are surviving everyday. These two non-profits raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness and focus on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. Survival rates increase when the disease is detected early, and 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their life.
So if you could help women detect and fight cancer just by eating delicious food, dancing and drinking, wouldn’t you do it? If your first thought wasn’t, “YES!” I think you need to go have some quiet self-reflection time. If this was your first thought, I urge you to join me on February 19th at Morgan Manufacturing for Tickled Pink for Bright Pink’s annual party. You can use our special code: LNTP4BP to get your ticket for $100. And think of what your $100 will do!
Plus, the lineup of Chicago restaurants preparing dishes at this party is so good it’s almost unbelievable, and we all know a party isn’t a party without good food! There will be over 50 chefs’ stations (think bites from Carnivale, Jellyfish, Siena Tavern, STK Chicago, La Fournette, Stan’s Donuts and many more!), an open bar, dancing to tunes spun by DJ Betty and a raffle that includes an assortment of exciting prizes. So please join me, not only for the fun, but also for the chance to help all those women who need assistance fighting their battle.
In the words of former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, “There is a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” And why go to hell when there is so much good food and champagne to be had?
