A Paddle for Cancer

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is hosting the third annual Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink benefit on August 16.

The multi-skill level paddle-boarding race will begin at 8 a.m. at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. Skilled paddle boarders can sign up for the 3-mile or the elite 6-mile course. Registration is $100, and 100 percent of all donations will go toward research. Each year, hundreds of paddle boarders and spectators have gathered together to raise money for the foundation.

That evening, Lisa and Richard Perry, along with Maria and Larry Baum, will host a benefit party at the Perry residence in North Haven. All of the proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Tickets begin at $1,000.
