The Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink 2015 – Paddle Race and Sunset Cocktail Party
The event, benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a cause near and dear to my heart as I honor my sweet Mother may she rest in peace and all the courageous and wonderful women beating breast cancer, drew stars including Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunham, Tracy Anderson and Nile Rodgers — all dressed in the rosy shade in an effort to draw attention to the cause of breast cancer research.
On Saturday, August 1, Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) raised more than $1.6 million, a record-breaking achievement at its fourth annual Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink. The two-part summer event was co-hosted by Maria & Larry Baum, Lisa & Richard Perryand Jackie & Bippy Siegal, which involved a WPA-sanctioned morning paddle race in Sag Harbor and a sunset party at Fairview on Mecox Bay in Bridgehampton.

The all-day event began with a paddleboarding contest on Sag Harbor’s Havens Beach and drew to a close with a dance partyon Mecox Bay. With the intention of raising funds for BCRF, through donations and a silent auction of 11 special paddleboards designed by the likes of Tory Burch, Aerin Lauder and Oprah.
While the “Girls” star has often turned her attentions toward women’s reproductive causes, she said that, “Breast cancer research is a new frontier for me. I feel really lucky that the people at BCRF were willing to educate me.”
