On Saturday, August 16, 2014, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is holding “The Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink.” The BCRF benefit kicks off with a multi-skill level paddle board race at Sag Harbor’s Havens Beach. The morning race, which begins at 8 a.m., is expected to attract hundreds of boarders and their fans as they race to beat breast cancer with co-hosts Richard and Lisa Perry and Maria and Larry Baum. The race will follow the World Paddle Association racing rules and racers will be timed with the WPA Blast Race Management System. Registration is $100.
Co-chair Maria Baum, mother of four and co-owner of popular Sag Harbor eatery Tutto II Giorno, will once again participate in the paddling alongside Richard Perry. She began paddling as a coping mechanism for her breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Following the day of fun in the sun, guests will end the night in style at the Sunset Party For Pink, which will bring together several hundred supporters at the beautiful Hamptons home of Lisa and Richard Perry in North Haven. The soiree starts at 6:30 p.m., and tickets begin at $1,000.
With last year’s event raising over $1.2 million in funds that directly benefited BCRF, this year’s bash is expected to be a huge success. In addition to cocktails and delicious dishes, attendees will enjoy the auction of one-of-a-kind Laird paddle boards designed by Kim Kardashian, Gwyneth Paltrow, Martha Stewart, Lisa Perry, Nicole Miller, Aerin Lauder, Donna Karan, Bethenny Frankel, Barry McGee, Lisa Pevaroff-Cohn, Breckin Meyer, and Tory Burch as well as remarks from Baum and an overview of the Foundation’s mission.
