On the first Friday of October, 430 guests gathered together at our headquarters to support the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. The ultimate ladies night out, this year’s Tickled Pink, a Gathering of Girlfriends event featured a silent auction, a cotton candy machine, photo booth and live music.
Guests placed their bids on silent auction items ranging from Vera Bradley corn hole boards to a resort getaway. Our favorite auction item was a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade viewing party hosted at the New York City home of Vera Bradley co-founder Barbara Bradley Baekgaard.
The moment that topped all others of the night – when Executive Director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer presented a check for $2.2 million to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories at Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center. This amount brings the total amount raised to $30.3 million.
Thank you to everyone who helped support Tickled Pink 2017 and hope to see you pretty in pink next year!
