Benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation [BCRF], the Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink is one of the best events on the East End. Of course, when you’ve got megastar Gwyneth Paltrow hosting and committee member and fitness expert Tracy Anderson (we love her!) in attendance, epic is pretty much the only word that comes to mind.
Here’s how everything shakes out: on Saturday, August 6, 2016, the paddle board race commences at 8 a.m. at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor. Later that evening, the sunset party begins at 7 p.m. at Fairview on Mecox Bay, 269 Horsemill Lane in Bridgehampton. Beyond mingling with beautiful people (although that’s reason enough), this bash raised $1.65M for the BCRF last year. In that spirit, here’s a preview of the surf and paddle boards that are up for auction at this year’s shindig. Even if you can’t attend, you can still bid online for one of these pieces of art that marry form with function. Ridiculously gorgeous, here are some of our favorite boards. Please note, the first board is from fashion designer Lisa Perry, and we love it.
