On Saturday, August 6th, Gwyneth Paltrow hosted one of the season's biggest and most anticipated events, the Hamptons Paddle and Party For Pink. The wellness guru joined forces with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) to help raise over $1.75 million towards breast cancer research during an all-day, two-part celebration. Of course, Paltrow's fitness BFF Tracy Anderson took part, kicking off the morning paddle race at Haven's Beach alongside Laird Hamilton, Gabby Reece, and about 200 water-loving participants. When the sun set, Gwyneth welcomed 500 partygoers to the philanthropic affair, which featured a DJ set by Brendan Fallis and an epic performance by Chic featuring Nile Rodgers. Capping off with a live auction featuring the star's own tickets to a private Coldplay concert in Amagansett, the evening was certainly one to remember.
