AN IMPRESSIVE CROWD of 650 ladies who lunch turned up at the Post Oak Hotel to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society. The “Tickled Pink” affair was a resounding success, breaking attendance and fundraising records for the event while generating support for survivors and caregivers.


Chairs Jacquie Baly, Beth Wolff and Cynthia Wolff — along with honorary chair, breast-cancer survivor Leisa Holland-Nelson Bowman — hosted a pretty, pink-ified program that included a keynote address by physician Arif Kamal, the chief patient officer for the ACS, and a standing ovation for Houston women who have made a philanthropic impact, particularly in the cancer space.

A sold-out raffle and sale of bottomless Champagne glasses contributed to the afternoon’s total till of nearly $400,000. Way to think pink!
