The Hot Pink Party Goes Cool raised $5.2 million with the help of Grammy award winner Sheryl Crow, businesswoman Elizabeth Hurley, and perennial crowd favorite Sir Elton John on April 24, 2007.
After the dinner and the auction (conducted by Ms. Hurley and Mrs. Lauder) Sheryl Crow and Sir Elton John performed for the 1100 guests. They raised $4.5 million, expanding the total raised since Mrs. Lauder created this foundation a little more than eleven years ago, to almost $170 million.
