Evelyn Lauder: 1936-2011


Pink was Evelyn H. Lauder's colour. The breast health advocate and founder of the Pink Ribbon campaign working for Estée Lauder for more than 50 years (she was Leonard Lauder's wife) died from ovarian cancer at her Manhattan home. 
She will be fondly remembered for all her action in the support of women, her graciousness and her kind manner.

    Elena,
    Judith Ripka (jewelry designer) made a bracelet in honor of Evelyn Lauder's work. The bracelet has a heart pendent that is paved with pink stones. I percent of the sales of this bracelet goes to their charity.

    It's sad to hear of people's -who made a difference- passing, but hopefully their work will be sustained and we can help that.
