NEW YORK — “Evelyn told me to give everyone a kiss,” Leonard Lauder told the assembled guests at Bloomingdale’s Ready, Set, Pink! private dinner at Le Cirque Thursday evening. Hosted by Michael Gould, the event honored Evelyn Lauder and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
But while the guest of honor was under the weather, she was there in spirit, especially as Gould extolled Evelyn Lauder’s dedication to the BCRF. “We’re involved in many causes, but the BCRF is very special to us,” said Gould. “This dinner is a way to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to give back.”
