Evelyn Lauder was the one that founded in 1994 the Breast Cancer Research Foundation hoping to eradicate breast cancer.

For this purpose, on Monday it was the gala event of BCRF where more than 1250 guests raised the pot.

Evelyn Lauder's husband was proud of the result of the Monday gala raising more than $5.3 million even before the event, and $6 million at the live auction.

"How I wish Evelyn were here to see this sold-out room," said Lauder, the chairman emeritus of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. and senior member of the board, cited by WWD. "She would be tickled pink", he continued in pointing out the pink dress code related to the foundation symbols.

At the gala were present names as Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Elisabeth Hurley, Vera Wang, Ray Kelly etc. Elton John performed with nine songs in remembrance of Estee Lauder.
