EMH Foundation Tickled Pink 2017

The Elmhurst Junior Women’s Club recently donated more than $13,000 to the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital (EMH) Foundation to support breast health services at the Nancy W. Knowles Cancer Center.

Every other year, the Women’s Club makes a donation to the Foundation based on proceeds from its “Tickled Pink” breast cancer awareness fundraiser. This year’s event, held on May 5, featured a marketplace with more than 25 vendors with a variety of items for sale, including purses, scarves and accessories, stationery and custom announcements, jewelry, garden art, children's art, books, furniture and accessories, gourmet foods, and makeup and skin care products.

Founded in 1980, the EMH Foundation offers many giving opportunities and annual special events designed to support the hospital’s programs and facilities, including the Autumn Affair, Hope Lives Here Luncheon, Chef Fest, Reindeer Route Housewalk and Love Lights program.
