Leonard A. Lauder Honored with Legacy Award at BeautyCares DreamBall
Since its founding in 1989, Mr. Lauder has been deeply committed to Look Good Feel Better, which provides cancer patients with personal care and beauty products to help them manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. During the organization’s pilot phase, ELC beauty consultants and education team members taught volunteers how to help patients apply make-up. Since then, 2.1 million women, men, and teenagers with cancer in 27 countries have taken workshops to help boost their self-confidence and regain hope.
Mr. Lauder extended warm congratulations to the evening’s two other esteemed honorees: Esi Eggleston Bracey, Chief Operating Officer, Executive Vice President, Beauty & Personal Care, Unilever North America, who received the Passionate Leadership Award; and Bershan Shaw, media personality, author, and two-time breast cancer survivor, who received the Survivor Advocate Award.
Mr. Lauder was joined by his wife, Judy Glickman Lauder, who together attended the event via Zoom.
Tony Award-winning actor and singer, James Monroe Iglehart delivered a moving performance and tribute to his wife, a cancer survivor and also performed an entertaining freestyle “DreamBall” rap with cast members from Hamilton.
