On Thursday May 14, 2015, at the Seaport World Trade Center, BCRF hosted The Boston Hot Pink Party, which raised $1.2 million dollars for breast cancer research.
The event honored actress Elizabeth Hurley, a longstanding advocate and The Estée Lauder Companies’ Global Ambassador for Breast Cancer Awareness, as well as ABC News Anchor and breast cancer survivor Amy Robach and her husband, Andrew Shue. Also in attendance were designers Tommy and Dee Hilfiger and Fidelity’s Peter Lynch. The 10th Anniversary of the annual gala featured a special performance by Broadway star Megan Hilty as guests celebrated their local commitment to the global health issue of breast cancer, upheld by the night’s theme: “Pink Locally, Act Globally.” styleboston’s Zoey Gulmi was there and has all the interviews you want to hear…

Terri Stanley was fortunate enough to interview the late Evelyn Lauder in 2010 for season 2 of styleboston. Mrs. Lauder told us that the idea for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s “Think Pink” and its pink ribbons was hatched over a cup of coffee at her kitchen table, and has grown into a worldwide campaign. A true lady, Mrs. Lauder could teach people a thing or two about grace. Watch this Power Player segment below and continue on for more information about the 2015 Boston Hot Pink. (styleboston will be on site at this year’s gala to catch all the action for a good cause.)
“I’ve never met a more gracious woman. She was without pretense or arrogance–truly amazing.”
