Actress Bernadette Peters, former NFL defensive end Marcellus Wiley and “Good Morning America” correspondent Robin Roberts ushered in this year’s Breast Cancer Research Foundation awards luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria Wednesday.
The event, dubbed the Hot Pink luncheon, included a humanitarian award for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and capped a month-long breast cancer awareness campaign by the BCRF, which included the illumination in pink light of more than 200 landmarks around the world. The organization’s fund-raising efforts in the last year yielded nearly $35 million, which was awarded at the luncheon to 166 doctors, scientists and researchers worldwide.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
