Winfield House, the residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Court of St. James’s lit up pink to honour the 25th Anniversary of The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign and the co-creation of the iconic pink ribbon by its visionary founder, the late Evelyn H. Lauder.
Robert Wood Johnson, Ambassador of the United States of America to the United Kingdom and his wife, Suzanne, hosted a reception at Winfield to mark the occasion, along with Evelyn’s son, William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman of The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. and Elizabeth Hurley, Global Ambassador for The Breast Cancer Campaign.
The campaigns mark the day, as 2017 Future Dreams Humanitarian Award was presented to William P. Lauder, in recognition of his mother’s pioneering work in breast cancer awareness and research.
Elizabeth Hurley, Global Ambassador for The Breast Cancer Campaign said: “Throughout my travels as Global Ambassador for The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Campaign, I’ve seen the hope that advancing breast cancer research is bringing. I’ve seen first-hand the strength of those fighting breast cancer and the strength of friends and family who are supporting them in their fight, and I truly believe that together we can bring this to an end.”
Philippe Warnery, Senior Vice-President/ General Manager, The Estée Lauder Companies UK & Ireland comments: “In 1992, there was no Pink Ribbon and very little awareness around breast cancer. Evelyn H. Lauder started a global movement and 25 years on it’s a remarkably different picture with advanced identification, treatments and survival rates. Along with our colleagues and partners around the globe, The Estee Lauder Companies will continue its unwavering commitment so that together we can achieve our mission to create a breast cancer-free world.”
