Elton to Perform at Hot Pink Party

Elton will be performing at The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) Annual Hot Pink Party Fundraiser on Tuesday, April 12, at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. This year’s event, a vibrant and lush experience reflecting the evening’s theme “BCRF Goes Wild,” will feature a special announcement about a new formal collaboration between the Women’s Cancer Research Fund and BCRF.

In past years Elton, who has been a part of this annual charity event since its inauguration in 2001, has treated the attendees to solo renditions of his hits and deep cuts. Two years ago Elton joined Sara Bareilles on her song Gravity in a memorable performance.

This year’s event, emceed by supermodel and actress Elizabeth Hurley, will celebrate Melinda Blinken, who will be receiving the 2016 Roslyn and Leslie Goldstein Unsung Hero Award from Gail Hilson.

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is committed to being the end of breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. In 2015, BCRF committed nearly $54 million to support 240 scientists at leading medical institutions internationally, making it one of the largest non-governmental funders of breast cancer research in the world.
