William P. Lauder Honored at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s Hot Pink Party

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation raised record-breaking $11 million during annual fundraising gala.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), returned to the Glasshouse in New York City on May 14 for its annual Hot Pink Party.

Guests, including Lauder family members, ELC leaders, and brand ambassadors, joined to support more than 30 years of breast cancer research. BCRF is the leading nonprofit partner of The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign in the company’s mission to help create a breast cancer-free world.

ELC Executive Chairman and BCRF Board Co-chair William P. Lauder was honored with the Evelyn H. Lauder Spirit of Philanthropy Award. Named in memory of William’s mother and BCRF’s founder, the award celebrates generosity—awarded to a visionary individual, family, or organization whose altruistic impact profoundly improves the lives of others, according to the company.

William’s daughter, Danielle Lauder, presented him with the award. In his acceptance speech, William thanked the BCRF researchers who work to bring the world closer to the end of breast cancer.

“The future is bright, and we will all continue to work together towards a world free from breast cancer,” he said.

Hosted by Elizabeth Hurley, global ambassador of ELC’s Breast Cancer Campaign, the evening raised more than $11 million to support BCRF’s global legion of 250 scientists pursuing high-impact, lifesaving breast cancer research. BCRF funds investigators who have been deeply involved in every major breakthrough in breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and metastasis. Today, BCRF and its cohort of scientists, continue to champion Evelyn’s legacy, advancing meaningful progress against the disease, officials said.
