ABOUT THE HAMPTONS PADDLE & PARTY FOR PINK

The Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink is an annual two-part event benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). The morning Paddle Board Race is a multi-skill level, WPA sanctioned points race that attracts hundreds of paddlers and spectators. The evening Sunset Party, previously held at the residence of Lisa and Richard Perry, is hosted by BCRF Board Member Maria Baum and her husband, Larry.

This unique event has become one of the hottest signature soirées on the Hamptons summer circuit.  It was founded in 2012 by Maria Baum, a mother of four, the CEO of Tracy Anderson, investor, entrepreneur, and a partner of Tutto Il Giorno restaurants. Maria was introduced to paddle boarding shortly after being diagnosed with breast cancer. She found it provided a positive outlet during her treatment and subsequent recovery. Inspired by her own passion for the sport, Maria was moved to use paddle boarding as a way to raise critical funds for lifesaving breast cancer research.

Last year’s event was the most successful to date raising over $1.75 million, selling out at both the paddle race and the party. Notable attendees included Gwyneth Paltrow, Nile Rodgers, Tracy Anderson, Gabrielle Reece and Laird Hamilton.
