Gossip Girl Get-Up
At the Pink Agenda spring gala, held at 24 Fifth Avenue last week, a dress designed by Abigail Lorick fetched $1000 during a silent auction. In addition to the Gossip Girl designer’s minimalist sheath (above), other items up for grabs included an autographed Brett Favre jersey, a 10-person vacation package to Vermont and a Saks beauty basket. In total, the event raised in excess of $50,000, the proceeds earmarked for raising awareness about breast cancer.
After losing her mother to the disease, Marisa Renee Lee founded the Pink Agenda three years ago with her roommate and best friend Liana Guzmán. Since then, they’ve allied with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to host “the new generation of philanthropists” at a series of glam cocktail parties.
Toast to a cure with these girls on May 29th, when the Pink Agenda co-sponsors the Grand Re-Opening of the Hudson River’s party barge The Frying Pan. That night, they’ll be partnering with the Hudson River Peers, a group of advocates for the welfare and development of the Hudson River Park. For more information, visit fohrp.org.
