Lauder, Sandra and Éric Ripert, Christina and Hal Steinbrenner, Lauran and Charlie Walk, and Samantha and David Yanks for a multi-skill, WPA sanctioned paddle board race in Sag Harbor. The Paddle will begin at Havens Beach at 8 a.m., and be led by Hamilton and Reece. Participants can choose a 3 mile rec course or 6 mile elite course.
“I just can’t wait for this year’s event!” shared Maria Baum. “Every year it gets better, as more of the most incredible people on the planet show up to paddle during the day and party at night to support the BCRF in our effort to fund the most life giving research.”
After you’ve gotten your morning paddle in rest up because attendees can celebrate their accomplishments and BCRF during Party for Pink hosted Ryan Seacrest at Fairview on Mecox Bay.
Every two minutes a woman in the U.S. is diagnosed with breast cancer, according to BCRF, and almost 1.7 million new cases were diagnosed worldwide in 2012. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is dedicated “to preventing and curing breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research.” Last year’s sold out event – which brought out Gwyneth Paltrow, Molly Sims, Rachel Zoe, Monique Lhullier, Nicole Miller, Katie Lee, Brendan Fallis, Jason Sehorn, and Alex Guarnaschelli – raised a record-breaking $1.9 million, and since Paddle & Party for Pink‘s launch, the event has raised nearly $7 million for BCRF.
“The purpose is profound, but it’s also the most fun day of the Hamptons season!” Baum added.
The Paddle for Pink registration fee is $175 and general admission Party for Pink tickets are $1,500.
