NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 --  On Wednesday, April 17,
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation will host its annual Hot Pink
Party at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. This year's event,
themed !Viva Fiesta!, will feature a performance by Multi-Grammy
Award-winning artist Sir Elton John. The always sold-out affair will
pay special tribute to Kay Krill, President and CEO of ANN INC., as
she receives BCRF's Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award, presented by
award-winning actress and ambassador of Ann Taylor's spring and
summer 2013 campaigns, Kate Hudson. Joining the evening's festivities
will be actress and supermodel Elizabeth Hurley, as well as co-chairs
Donna Karan, Michael Kors, William Lauder, and Vera Wang, among
others. The Foundation hopes to top last year's record-setting goal
of more than $5 million in funds raised to support life-saving breast
cancer research. 
"The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is thrilled to have Kate
Hudson join us as we recognize Kay Krill and ANN INC. for their
passion for women's issues and commitment to our organization. As a
result of their contributions and the money raised through The Hot
Pink Party, BCRF is able to continue its mission to fund vital breast
cancer research," said Myra Biblowit, President, BCRF. She added,
"With the support of Sir Elton John and Elizabeth Hurley, who bring
this special event to life, we hope that this year's Hot Pink Party
will be our best yet." 
During the course of the evening, dedicated and longtime BCRF donor,
Judith Schlager, will be presented the Roz and Les Goldstein Unsung
Hero Award. Ms. Schlager, a breast cancer survivor, will receive the
2013 award in recognition of her work of helping others cope with a
breast cancer diagnosis. Schlager has also played a pivotal role in
BCRF's goal to broaden its national reach and she will receive the
honor from Sandra Krakoff, a fellow member of BCRF's Advisory Board. 
In addition to Michael Kors, Donna Karan, William Lauder, and Vera
Wang, event co-chairs include Marjorie Reed Gordon, Delphine and Reed
Krakoff, Kinga Lampert, Laura and Gary Lauder, Leonard A. Lauder, Jo
Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Cynthia and Dan Lufkin, Jeanne and

year's Hot Pink Party is Mike's Hard Lemonade. To date, BCRF has
raised over $425 million to advance the most promising breast cancer
research worldwide that will help lead to prevention and a cure in
our lifetime. Since its inaugural event in 2001, the Hot Pink Party
has generated over $51 million.
