It might be a tough year for philanthropy, but not if you have Elton John, Liza Minnelli and Elizabeth Hurley on your side, as Evelyn Lauder proved Wednesday evening at her ninth annual Hot Pink Party.
The event, which benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, raised $3.7 million from more than 750 attendees — including actresses Jane Krakowski and Marilu Henner and designers Michael Kors, Vera Wang and Donna Karan — at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York. The evening was hosted by Hurley (for the eighth time — “I missed one when I was pregnant,” she said), with John handling the talent.
