The word “PINK” in bright glowing letters greets you as you enter a tent that brings you to the chicest event the Wisconsin Dells has ever seen. A pink celebrity carpet is your runway with photographers catching your every move, you check your name in as if at an A-List party and receive your swag bag of goodies. You then purchase one of a variety of delectable pink drinks, grab some hors d’ oeuvres and an adorable pink swirled, chocolate covered pretzel and settle in for a truly fabulous night. The best part of the evening? All proceeds went to the UW Carbone Cancer Center in honor of national breast cancer awareness month.

From the flawless decorations to flip book photo booth, Pink Partini was the party of the year! Starting at 6 p.m., the first portion of the event focused on socializing, partaking in mouth watering food and pink desserts, enjoying a few cosmo coolers or pink champtinis and stopping at the various activity booths. A perfect girls night out, there were pictures to be taken, prizes to be won, a wine tasting to participate in and a silent auction with some incredible prizes. Whether or not you won a spa treatment, gift card, or a pair of diamond earrings, everyone was a winner this night since the event raised over 6,000 dollars for breast cancer research.

At 8:30 p.m. attendees gathered in or around the next tent where pulsing beats and bright lights announced a fashion show complete with a pink runway. Featuring the latest in Tanger mall fashions, the most popular stores displayed their top women and menswear looks. The fashion show did its job with everyone itching to buy his or her favorite runway outfits by then end.

The event concluded with the ticket drawing for a number of fabulous prizes, including the grand prize of two tickets to the sold-out upcoming Justin Bieber concert in Milwaukee. Overall it was an incredible and inspiring way to kick off breast cancer awareness month.
