“Hello, and thank you so much for coming!” actress Megan Hollingshead gushed as she greeted guests wearing a bridal gown in a one-person receiving line at the Supper Club. The actress was part of the wedding-themed decor at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's (BCRF) benefit dinner, which was followed by a preview performance at the Winter Garden of Mamma Mia!, the new Broadway musical about a young Greek girl about to be married.

Organized by BCRF director of special events (and BiZBash advisory board member) Pamela Miller, the event featured a fun 70's decor scheme by Monroe Alechman of Estee Lauder (Evelyn Lauder is the founder of BCRF) and DeVinn Bruce of H. DeVinn Visual. (The same duo also designed the decor for BCRF's annual spring gala.) The pink-themed evening (after the pink ribbons that signify breast cancer awareness) featured large pink daisies painted on white boards attached to clear Lucite sticks that were planted inside adobe flower pots filled with moss. The room glowed with matching pink lights, and even the gift bags, courtesy of Estee Lauder company Stila Cosmetics, were mostly pink.
