2020 CT Luncheon & Fashion Show
Pink Aid’s 10-Year Celebration Packed a Virtual Punch with Appearances by Country Stars “Old Dominion,” Celebrities and More!
Pink Aid’s Semi-Virtual 10th Anniversary Celebration was broadcast Saturday evening 10.10.20 to hundreds of supporters who purchased event links and Party Packages to mark this milestone in small party pods across the country. An amazing line-up of guest hosts including Guiliana Rancic, Hoda Kotb, Joan Lunden, Susie Essman, and even a shout out from Long Island’s Billy Joel, were a few of the highlights. A performance by CMA’s 2020 “Group of the Year,” Old Dominion, a peek at the latest in cashmere from Brunello Cucinelli and a prerecorded “Celebration of Life Fashion Show” featuring women recovering from breast cancer, gave the event its emotional core. The show was introduced by this year’s Visionary Chairs, Cindy Citrone and Kim Meier and sponsored in part by Citrone/33 Foundation, The Bainbridge Companies and Jack Resnick & Sons, Inc. among others.
Guests received lots of Pink Aid swag to get their parties started including specialty cocktail kits courtesy of Cylinder Vodka and treats from Marcia Selden Catering & Events in Stamford, and online auction Items included a trip to Brunello Cucinelli’s Tuscan village, Solomeo, a year of shoes from Mitchells Westport, custom Golden Goose sneakers, golf outings at exclusive courses, jewelry, wine, art and a Peloton bike.
Since our founding in 2011, Pink Aid has donated more than $6.5 million to 47 different programs and hospitals — in all corners of the state and on Long Island. Through its Pink Purse Initiative, Pink Aid provides direct financial assistance to cover essential household expenses like rent and utility bills, babysitting, and transportation to and from treatment. Since many Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck, the current pandemic with its impact on employment is further fueling the financial crisis for families across the country. Pink Aid’s Pink Purse is expanding nationally to meet that increased need.
