The Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink Benefitting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
The third annual summer “Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink” fundraiser, benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will be an event in two parts—a multi-skill level paddle boarding race and benefit party co-hosted by prominent New Yorkers Lisa & Richard Perry and full-time Hamptons residents Maria & Larry Baum. The morning paddle board race will bring together hundreds of competitive paddle boarders and spectators. The race will be followed by a sunset party at the spectacular residence of Lisa & Richard Perry attended by several hundred guests in support of raising critical funds for breast cancer research.
Co-chair Maria Baum, mother of four, investor, entrepreneur, and a partner of Tutto Il Giorno restaurants, took on paddle boarding as an exuberant activity to help her cope through her breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and subsequent recovery. She will once again race alongside longtime paddler Richard Perry and the anticipated 150-plus paddlers. The race will follow World Paddle Association racing rules and all racers will be timed with the WPA Blast Race Management System. Following the race, guests will revel at a sunset party.
Last year’s evening event, which drew such guests as Laird Hamilton, Gabrielle Reece, Aerin Lauder, William Lauder, Donna Karan, Hilary Rhoda, Matt Lauer, Edie Falco, Martha Stewart, Carolyn Murphy, Hannah Bronfman, Gary Cohn, Edward Lampert, Thom Filicia Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler, raised over $1.2 million in funds that went directly toward the Foundation.
