The eighth annual Hamptons Paddle for Pink to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation hit the water at Havens Beach in Sag Harbor Saturday, August 3. The fundraiser, featuring a morning of multi-skill, World Paddle Association-sanctioned paddle board races, raised $650,000 to go toward the foundation’s mission to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Katie Lee, author, food critic, and co-host of the Food Network’s “The Kitchen,” served as the event host, and was joined by special guests Gina Bradley, Jennifer Levene Bruno, Pat and Dawn Kiernan, and Sandra Ripert.
