While internet folk far and wide are busy dumping ice water to raise funds for ALS research, Lisa Perry’s compound was busy pouring champagne to benefit breast Cancer research. The yearly Paddle & Party for Pink took over the Perry palace which boasts a killer view of the Noyack Bay and a huge outdoor modern art collection to boot, and it all came together for one epic weekend shindig. Guests enjoyed an early morning paddle-out before re-convening for evening glitz and fun-draising.
The Olsen Twins made a brief appearance joined by Mary-Kate’s Français fiancé, Olivier Sarkozy, before the party was in full swing, and had a chat with fellow beautiful couple, Hilary Rhoda and Sean Avery. Later, fitness powerhouse Tracy Anderson swapped her workout gear for a smoking evening look and walked us through the collection of paddle boards designed by the glitzy guests. Leviev jewelry executive vice president Lisa Klein’s board was a crowd favorite, as well as Donna Karan’s DKNY logo-centric board. It turns out Donna, who arrived with her daughter Gabby in tow, is a surfing fanatic, but the mom and daughter pair don’t ride the waves together. “We don’t surf on the water together,” Donna said, “We surf through life together!”
In all the event raised $1.5 million for breast Cancer research – partying for pink certainly pays off!
