Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink

Last weekend on Saturday, August 17th, the second annual Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink took place in Sag Harbor. It is an event for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which consists of a multi-skill level paddle boarding race and benefit. Co-hosted by Lisa and Richard Perry (native New Yorkers), it allows paddle boarders of all skill sets to compete and help raise money to donate to the foundation. In its first year alone, the Paddle & Party for Pink raised more than half a million dollars, a landmark feat for the event’s induction year. Special guests for 2013 included athletes Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton.
