Last night Vera celebrated the 16th Anniversary of the Hot Pink Party in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The BCRF works diligently to promote widespread prevention “and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime by providing critical funding for innovative clinical and translational research at leading medical centers worldwide, and increasing public awareness about good breast health.”
“Breast Cancer afflicts all of us. not just the patient, but families and loved ones. No one championed the fight against this disease better than my friend, the late Evelyn Lauder whose own fight never stopped her from vowing to help others and save lives. She is, was, and will always be my idol, mentor, and much missed friend.” – Vera
As a close friend of Evelyn’s, Vera is a proud supporter of this important cause, and was a Co-Chair of the annual event. The night included a special performance from Grammy nominated Singer-Songwriter Sarah Bareilles who was joined on stage by living legend Sir Elton John for a performance of her song “Gravity.” Scroll through for candid photos of her night supporting a cause close to her heart.
