Press Pass LA attended the pink carpet for the 10th Anniversary Pink Party supporting the Women’s Cancer Program at Cedars Sinai Medical Center thrown by Elyse Walker and hosted by Jennifer Garner and Rachel Zoe.
The Pink Party raised over $1.8 million for WCP and over the last decade has raised an astounding $11.5 million for the program. This was the final year for this amazing event and as founder Elyse Walker told us it was time to “go big or go home!”
Elyse Walker- stylist, boutique owner and Creative Director of FWRD- originally started the event as a way to honor her mother, who passed away from stage 4 ovarian cancer at the age of 42. It is a true celebration of women, fashion, friendship and life, combining a party atmosphere with a huge fashion show, and the final year certainly delivered.
Last night’s event kicked off with a heartfelt speech by Dr. Beth Karlan, director of the Women’s Cancer Program (WCP) at the Cedars-Sinai Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute, followed by words from founder, Elyse Walker and hosts, Jennifer Garner and Rachel Zoe.
The event included a live auction which featured a one week stay at Casa Yvonne (a San Jose del Cabo Luxury Home), a one-year lease on a 2014 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet from The Auto Gallery, and The Perfect 10 Package which featured items such as a $10,000 shopping spree at FWRD, 10 gold and diamond pave stacking rings from Zoe Chicco, dinner at Giorgi Baldi for 10 people and more. For the third year, contemporary artist, RETNA (Marqis Lewis), donated a gorgeous blue on white work of art, which pre-sold for an undisclosed amount. And for the fourth year, SUPRA joined forces with Walker by creating a limited-edition Pink Party high-top sneaker in which the proceeds benefit the cause.
Guests were also treated to a fashion show where models walked down a 50-foot runway which was framed with two mixed-media paintings by RETNA. The show featured eight looks each from design houses ADEAM, Barbara Bui, Belstaff, Chloé, J.Mendel, Giambattista Valli, Lanvin, Rachel Zoe, and Reed Krakoff. The models’ hair was styled by celebrity hairdresser Chaz Dean and makeup was from Benefit Cosmetics.
Attendees included Maria Shriver and daughter Katherine Schwarzenegger, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Molly Sims and Scott Stuber, Shay Mitchell, Marcia Cross, AJ Cook, Reid Scott, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, Frances Fisher, and more!
