CEW held its annual Beauty of Giving luncheon Friday afternoon at the Hilton Midtown Manhattan.Cos Bar founder Lily Garfield and the Tweezerman brand served as the afternoon's honorees — each received a trophy for their commitment to "uniting beauty and benevolence."The luncheon, which typically attracts a crowd of several-hundred beauty industry professionals, is always CEW's last hurrah for the year, benefiting Cancer and Careers. The charitable organization supports current and former cancer patients as they navigate the workforce.Garfield herself is a cancer survivor — in 2007, she was diagnosed with peripheral T-cell lymphoma. She was treated successfully that year in a clinical trial at MD Anderson Center in Houston."Lily has since made her success and survivorship a catalyst for helping others," said Heidi Manheimer, chairwoman of the CEW Foundation. "She has invested her personal insight and her company's resources to making that happen."Reflecting on her time at MD Anderson, Garfield spoke to the crowd about how beauty helped her through the aggressive cancer treatments she was undergoing — coincidentally, at the same time Evelyn Lauder was being treated for breast cancer."I did lose my hair but always made sure I had eyeliner or lip gloss on — I just did the best I could to look good for what I was going through — and of course, Hermès scarves," she joked."It takes a village to get you through your ailments," Garfield said, switching tones. She noted that she aims to use Cos Bar's platform — the luxury beauty retailer opened its 20th store this month in Dallas — to raise awareness for Cancer and Careers.Jürgen Bosse, chief executive officer of Tweezerman, accepted the brand's award. Tweezerman donates a percentage of its annual profits to various charitable organizations, including Cancer and Careers. He recalled early in his tenure with the beauty tools company a meeting with a title that he joked made him quite nervous — "Our second bottom line." "I had no idea what it was — we don't have this in Germany," Bosse said. "Luckily, there was no reason to sweat — I soon found out that our second bottom line stands for our commitment to give back to the world with a percentage of our profits each and every year."The Esteé Lauder Cos. Inc. also received an honor at the luncheon — the first-ever Legacy award, for the company's commitment to its Breast Cancer Awareness campaign, which is in its 25th year.
