BENEFICIARY

Funds raised this year will support the Breast Health Center at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, in the past we have been able to purchase valuable educational tools for the Center that directly support their patients.

DONORS

Through the generosity of local businesses and volunteers, we are able to offer appetizers, desserts, gift bags, and door prizes!

Additionally, we will have raffle baskets that appeal to women of all ages brimming with accessories, jewelry, gift certificates, glassware, dishes, bath products, athletic gear, movies, music and goodies! Some of this year's baskets include amazing pieces of jewelry and four unbelievable tickets to our World Champions Chicago Cubs! 

Our fundraiser is fully staffed with volunteers from the Elmhurst Junior Women's Club, local health organizations and local middle and high school students. If you would like to donate an item or your time to this great cause, please contact us at elmhurst.juniors@gmail.com.

VENDORS

This year we have more than 25 vendors registered and will be offering amazing crafted items and we will have a number of stations providing fun activities for our young ticket holders. Our vendors have had an incredible variety of items for sale. Some products are purses, scarves and accessories, stationery and custom announcements, jewelry, garden art, children's art, books, furniture and accessories, gourmet foods, makeup and skincare products and much more. In the spirit of the event, vendors have plenty of "pink products" on hand. Vendors pay a table fee and are asked to donate a percentage of their profits or an item to be raffled.

We are very interested in providing information to potential vendors for our next Tickled Pink event. If you would like to receive information or an application please email us at elmhurst.juniors@gmail.com.
