On Thursday, October 13, The Pink Agenda, a New York City-based nonprofit committed to raising money for breast cancer research and care, as well as awareness of the disease among young professionals, hosted The Pink Agenda’s Annual Gala at Three Sixty° in New York. The Pink Agenda shares a strategic partnership with its long-time beneficiary, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), to fund research, as well as Giuliana Rancic’s FAB-U-WISH initiative. Through the combined effort of this year’s co-chairs and The Pink Agenda’s leadership, the event successfully raised over $250,000 to benefit The Pink Agenda and FAB-U-WISH. Special guest’s Willie Geist and Bill Rancic hosted a live auction to grant the wishes of three women battling cancer, and were able to raise nearly $20,000 over the course of the night.
The Pink Agenda honored fitness pioneer Tracy Anderson at the gala with the Lisa Mae Lee Award, in recognition of her outstanding leadership in the fight against breast cancer. Style icon and dear friend, Olivia Palermo presented her the award with a heartfelt speech recognizing Anderson’s kindness, compassion and generous spirit.
