Race, Hamp­tons re­cep­tion ben­e­fit the Breast Cancer Re­search Foun­da­tion

Palm Beach Daily News - - OPINION -

BRIDGEHAMPTON, N.Y. — At this party, the cock­tails and hors d’oeu­vres are guilt-free, a re­ward for the morn­ing’s aching arms and over­all sweat.

The “Sun­set Party,” the sec­ond half of the sixth an­nual Hamp­tons Pad­dle & Party For Pink, took place Aug. 5 at Fairview on Me­cox Bay.

The re­cep­tion cel­e­brated the par­tic­i­pants in that morn­ing’s pad­dle­board race, a multi-skill level, World Pad­dle As­so­ci­a­tion-sanc­tioned points race, which at­tracts hun­dreds of spec­ta­tors.

Larry and Maria Baum were chair­man and chair­woman for the Sun­set Party. Maria Baum — CEO, in­vestor, restau­ra­teur, wife and mother of four — started pad­dle­board­ing as an out­let dur­ing her treat­ment for and re­cov­ery from breast cancer.

She founded the event in 2012 as a way to raise funds for breast cancer re­search. In ad­di­tion to cock­tails and hors d’oeu­vres, the event in­cluded an auc­tion of de­signer pad­dle­boards, live en­ter­tain­ment and danc­ing.

Pro­ceeds from both events as­sist the Breast Cancer Re­search Foun­da­tion in its mis­sion to pre­vent and cure breast cancer by ad­vanc­ing the world’s most promis­ing re­search.

This year, BCRF has com­mit­ted $57 mil­lion to sup­port more than 265 re­searchers at lead­ing med­i­cal institutions in 14 coun­tries.
