On Sept. 10, Drai’s will be pretty in pink.
That’s when the seventh annual Pink Party takes place, created by fashionista Elyse Walker in 2005 to help fund the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program.
The idea is to do a runway show/party, this year hosted by Jennifer Garner, as a way to make a fundraiser a little more interesting. The “pink” part of the name comes with the color associated with women’s cancers and every year a sizeable percentage guests — including some fashion-adventurous men — can be found wearing the hue at the affair.
Jamie Lee Curtis, who hosts the live auction, says she supports the event because “the spirit is unique. I’m not a style person, but it’s fun to see how people develop the theme. Try though I might, I fail miserably at being a style-y girl.”
In the past seven years, roughly $6 million has been raised.
