Last week, Pink Agenda, a non-profit organization that raises funds for breast cancer awareness and research, hosted its 6th annual gala, “Let’s Paint The Town Pink” at the Angel Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art on the Lower East Side. Notable attendees included Chris Benz and his mother Becky Benz, William Lauder, Kara Council, and Erin Brady. Kara Council was honored for her incredible bravery and leadership in the fight against breast cancer. Chris Benz, whose mother Becky is a breast cancer survivor, was also an honored guest for the evening.
The event included a silent auction that featured vacation packages, designer pieces, tickets to sporting events, and much more. Guests were also treated to a full bar and a variety of hors d’oeuvres. Myra, the president of the Breast Cancer and Research Foundation, was presented with a $250,000 check to benefit her organization. Over $125,000 was raised through the auction that evening. What incredible accomplishments for a great cause!
