Richard Perry, president and managing partner of hedge fund Perry Partners LP and chairman of Barneys New York, and his designer wife, Lisa Perry, hosted a fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation at their home in North Haven, New York.
It was the first time they've organized a paddle board race and cocktail party for the organization. "I'm a little surprised that this got traction," said Lisa Perry. "We thought maybe we'd raise $200,000, and we're close to $550,000." In the end, the party brought in more than $615,000.
