Winfield House was lit pink to celebrate the Estee Lauder companies’ breast cancer campaign 25-year milestone.
Twenty-five years ago the Estee Lauder Group launched the Breast Cancer awareness Pink Ribbon campaign. It is the brainchild of former Editor-in-Chief Alexandra Penney and Evelyn Lauder who is known as “one of the most energetic campaigners in the fight against breast cancer”. This is how the pink ribbon became the symbol of breast cancer awareness today.
This month the campaign is marking its 25th anniversary in a number of different ways across the different brands and product ranges. One of the ways in which the milestone is being celebrated is through an event at Winfield House, the residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America to the Court of St. James’s. The residence was lit up pink to honour and celebrate the anniversary of both the campaign and the late Evelyn Lauder.
The event was hosted by the Ambassador of the United States of America to the United Kingdom, Robert Wood Johnson and his wife Suzanne alongside William P. Lauder, Evelyn’s son and chairman of Estee Lauder Companies.
