Elton John and Sting were among the performers at a very special event in New York City that raised over $4 million for breast cancer research during the weekend.

Held at the Waldorf Astoria and benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the Tickled Pink event attracted guests such as emcee Elizabeth Hurley, Carolyn Murphy and current Miss USA Rima Fakih.

The annual event is a successful fundraising platform for the organization.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and translational research. In October 2009, BCRF awarded nearly $28.5 million to 173 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
