On Saturday, August 5, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) raised nearly $2 million at its sixth annual Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink. Since its inception, the celebrated annual Hamptons event has raised more than $8 million for BCRF’s mission to advance the world’s most promising breast cancer research.
The two-part summer event was co-chaired by Maria & Larry Baum, Lisa Pevaroff-Cohn & Gary Cohn, Kinga & Edward Lampert, Jackie & Bippy Siegal, and hosted by TV/radio host and producer Ryan Seacrest. The day began with a WPA-sanctioned morning paddle race at Haven’s Beach in Sag Harbor and an evening bash took place at Fairview on Mecox Bay in Bridgehampton.
The morning race at Haven’s Beach was led by founder of standup paddle boarding Laird Hamilton and Gabrielle Reece. It kicked off with 200 paddlers and guests including Jimmy Buffett, Stacey Griffith, and Katie Lee. Later that day, the sunset party hosted by Ryan Seacrest, featured an artist-designed paddleboard auction, and musical performances by DJ Questlove, Taylor Dayne, and DJ D-Nice. Notable party guests included Tracy Anderson, Candace Bushnell, Nicole Miller, Olivia Palermo & Johannes Huebl, Lisa & Richard Perry, and Kendra Scott.
