Edmiston supports ‘Paddle for Pink’ in aid of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Edmiston, the leading superyacht sale and charter company, has supported an event for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) in the Hamptons which raised over $1,200,000.
Seven of Edmiston’s team from the New York, Monaco and London offices took part in a six mile paddleboard race around North Haven Island with over 130 other boarders including Laird Hamilton, the world famous surfer, who is an ambassador for the charity. Edmiston also hosted an exclusive cocktail party onboard a yacht off Sag Harbour for the key donors to the charity.
Rory Trahair, Edmiston Head of Marketing, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting such a fantastic cause and for so many of the Edmiston team to be able to play such an active role in the fundraising. We know with the BCRF that this money will be invested directly into research to save lives of those who are affected by this disease.”
This was the second annual summer 'Hamptons Paddle & Party for Pink' fundraiser and was a two-part event - a multi-skill level paddleboarding race and a benefit party co-hosted by prominent New Yorkers Lisa and Richard Perry and full-time Hamptons residents Maria and Larry Baum. The event attracted dozens of competitive paddle boarders and several hundred guests in support of raising critical funds for breast cancer research. Last year’s event raised over $675,000 in funds that went directly toward the Foundation.
