Guests at the Mandarin Oriental for the Women’s Committee of the Central Park Conservancy's Annual Fall Luncheon.
On Friday, October 16, The Pink Agenda, a New York City-based nonprofit comprising young professionals committed to fighting breast cancer, hosted The Pink Agenda’s Annual Gala at Three Sixty° in New York. The Pink Agenda partners with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to fund critical research and with Giuliana Rancic’s FAB-U-WISH initiative to help young women fighting breast cancer feel special while raising awareness for breast cancer research. Through the hard work of this year’s co-chairs and The Pink Agenda committee members, the event successfully raised over $250,000 to benefit The Pink Agenda and FAB-U-WISH.

The Pink Agenda’s Annual Gala was generously sponsored by The Lauder Foundation - Leonard & Judy Lauder Fund, Lyft, Cindy & Rob Citrone, William Lauder & Lori Tritsch, Cushman & Wakefield, Hanky Panky, Brunswick Group, and Bandier.

The Pink Agenda believes that engaging today’s generation can go a long way toward finding tomorrow’s cure for breast cancer. That’s why The Pink Agenda, together with its partner the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, is working with the next generation of leaders to find and fund programs that are improving the lives of those suffering from breast cancer and conducting the groundbreaking research necessary to improve their odds. The Pink Agenda, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization launched in 2007, has contributed more than $1 million to breast cancer research. In 2014, The Pink Agenda partnered with breast cancer survivor and television personality Giuliana Rancic and her initiative FAB-U-WISH. Together, Giuliana Rancic’s FAB-U-WISH and The Pink Agenda grant the most fabulous wishes to young women undergoing treatment for this devastating disease.
