Tickled Pink

FORT WAYNE, INDIANA - Delta. We told you she was coming to party with us at Tickled Pink, and party she did. We owe that all to Barb Richards from local radio station Majic 95.1 FM . We are so blessed to have Barb in our corner, she has never let us down. (You can read about Barb in this year’s Foundation: The Vera Bradley for Breast Cancer Magazine.) Now let me tell you about this Delta. Simply put, she is breathtaking. Everyone who has her new CD Delta knows she is not only beautiful but also talented. The fact that those things are just the surface is what really puts everything into perspective. She is a cancer survivor, and her mama has just completed treatment as well. She has come through so many trials in her life and still radiates joy and happiness - just a shining example of how we all should face adversity. That being said, she was a great element of the Tickled Pink party, putting on a moving performance. Another memorable moment of the evening was when our sweet friend Carolyn from Skate for Hope presented a check to the Foundation. And the Foundation also presented a check to the IU Simon Cancer Center staff. Now that my job entails attending fundraising events about once per week or more, I think I'm speaking from a position of authority when I say this one was tops! (You can check out more photos in our Tickled Pink 2008 album on Flickr to see what I mean.) I already can't wait for next year's party!

Oh my goodness! I am sooooo glad you all had a great time! This is sooo amazing! I wish i was able to attend!

Delta is just the most beautiful girl that i have ever met! She really does try and help in every single way! Especially trying to spread the word about Hodgkins Lymphoma (life threatening form of cancer that Delta was diagnosed with).

Its amazing to see how greatly involved one can be, even if its just bringing joy and happiness in someones life just through her sound of music! (I know i have turned to Delta's music during the bad and hard times)

Im just thankful to have an inspiration in my life and that i look up to! Shes a shining star!

Please make sure that everyone goes out and buys her album!

And also please visit and join her forum! She has such an amazing fan base!! They are sooo beautiful, just like her!

Anyways, im soo happy for you all! im soo glad you all had a great time!

Thanks for sharing! :-)

love and light!

Delta is such a wonderful advocate for cancer! In Australia and in other places of the world she does so much for the cancer community even starting up her own research fund named 'the Delta Goodrem Leukemia and Lymphoma Research Foundation'. Delta does not just have such an angelic voice, but an angelic heart. She is such a wonderfully talented, brilliant and spectactular person and her music is utterly inspirational. I love Delta and give her my upmost support in everything she does. Whoever is privelidged enough to EVER meet her or see her perform in person should feel sooo happy and luvk yo have such an honour. Love Delta!
