Our team members at Prestige NY are among the many supporters of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). Of course, there are plenty of celebrities who gladly use their platforms to raise awareness and funds for the fight against the disease. One of the events we remember fondly was overflowing with big names.
In April 2014, the BCRF’s Hot Pink Party took place in New York’s Waldorf Astoria. It was definitely a star-studded event!
- Sara Bareilles joined Sir Elton John onstage for a captivating performance.
- Leonard Lauder and Kinga Lampert co-hosted the event.
- Elizabeth Hurley was the emcee.
- Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Reed Krakoff, Aerin Lauder, William Lauder, and Vera Wang were co-chairs.
We at Prestige NY note that John has hosted this event for more than 10 years. He remembered his loved one, Evelyn Lauder, who battled the disease, indicating, “Evelyn Lauder was a philanthropic force to be reckoned with. She was a dear friend, and I am proud to keep her extraordinary legacy alive by supporting BCRF and its mission to eradicate breast cancer through research.”
Other guests at the Hot Pink Party included Josh Groban, Tory Burch, Thom Browne, Paul Shaffer, Bob Kraft, Bill Belichick, Victor Cruz, Jeff Gordon, Greta Rooney, Katrina Bowden, Star Jones, Lisa Perry, and Hailee Steinfeld.
