A toast to Tickled Pink!

Even if pink isn’t your color, supporting a great cause looks good on everyone. Friday night, more than 500 women gathered at Vera Bradley Stonebridge to partake in a silent auction, and delicious offerings from 22 hospitality vendors at the 7th annual Tickled Pink, girls’ night out.

The set wrapped just in time for Executive Director of the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Catherine Hill to present a monumental check for  $2.25 million to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Research Laboratories, the largest single donation The Foundation has ever made.  Out of the sea of pink, a glorious feeling of hope emerged; hope for a cure and for the future.  Can’t wait for Tickled Pink 2011!
