In honor of the American Cancer Society, over 100 guests gathered at Tootsies for the Tickled Pink kick off. This premier fundraising luncheon honors excepcional philanthropic Houstonians, with all of the raised funds going toward breast cancer research, education and support services. Much like the name of the event, everything was pink—think pink champagne, cake pops, macaroons and, of course, iconic outfits in an array of pink hues. Chairs of the event include Donna Lewis (breast cancer survivor), Allison CaSan Lewis and Emily Lewis, with honorary chairs Leisa Holland-Nelson Bowman (breast cancer survivor) and MilleSe Sherman who shared the slate of 2023 Tickled Pink Honorees: Suzan Deison, Winell Herron, Denise Monteleone, Rosanne Oelfke, Dr. Kent Osborne, and Donna Grace Vallone. The afternoon began with a VIP reception, which led into an informal fashion show hosted by Tootsies and a meaningful message of hope shared by keynote speaker and Houston designer Christy Lynn.
