16th Annual Tickled Pink Benefiting Twist Out Cancer Is Back This February

The 16th annual Tickled Pink fundraiser returns on Friday, February 16th, 2024, bringing a night of culinary delights, live music, and more to Rockwell on the River. Benefiting Twist Out Cancer, the event is one of Chicago’s premier social events symbolizing hope, resilience, and community support.

Founded in 2005 by Jodi Fyfe, Founder and CEO of The Paramount Group, Tickled Pink is a heartfelt tribute to her cousin Carrie Kenney who lost her battle with breast cancer at the age of thirty-five. Since the inaugural event, the evening has transformed into a formidable force for good, raising over two million dollars to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

“So many people have been impacted by cancer whether they’re currently battling it, survivors, or have a loved one that’s been diagnosed,” shares Jodi Fyfe. “We’re proud to host such an inspiring and hopeful evening while also remembering those we’ve lost.”

500 guests are expected to attend this year’s Tickled Pink fundraiser at Rockwell on the River in Avondale. The evening features culinary delights from over twenty of Chicago’s top chefs and restaurants including Demera, eden, Frontera Grill, Gene and Georgetti, Imee’s Kitchen, Lexington Betty Smokehouse, Luella’s Southern Kitchen, Maple & Ash, Piccolo Sogno, Prairie Grass Café, Soul & Smoke, Antique Taco, Pizza Lobo, and Justice of the Pies. Guests will additionally enjoy live music from The Chicago Players as well as raffle prizes.

For 2024, Tickled Pink has proudly united with Twist Out Cancer, a nonprofit organization providing psychosocial support to previvors, survivors, and caregivers through creative arts programming, which serves as a mechanism for healing.

Tickets for Tickled Pink are $125 per person or $475 for a group of five. Rockwell on the River is located at 3057 North Rockwell Street, Chicago, IL 60618. For more information and to purchase tickets or make a donation, please visit
