It was 50 shades of pink and all that that might suggest at Hotel ZaZa Thursday night when a sellout crowd of 500 joined the annual "Party in Pink," benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation. A Palm Beach vibe prevailed as the young and restless partied poolside, a Pink Flamingo neon sign holding command over the sultry scene and Veuve Clicquot rosé fueling the interaction.

Pink hair, pink polos and pink party frocks ruled the sea of young professionals that swarmed over the pool terrace and lounged in the private cabanas.

Tootsies contributed its share of eye candy with alluring models in to-die-for summer fashions.  

Newly-engaged Laura Max Nelson and Ben Rose checked out the surroundings as a possible locale for their wedding. Blonde Side columnist Jayme Lamm mixed it up with Fox 26 morning news anchor Rita Garcia while fashionista Yasmine Haddad in pink wig and the fetching Karina Barbieri stylishly floated through the bustling scene.

While pink flamingos drifted gracefully around the ZaZa pool, guests made their way to the various food stations, tried their skills at the casino and Jenga tables and boogied to the spins of DJ Bizonee. Tootsies contributed its share of eye candy with alluring models in to-die-for summer fashions. Monarch chef Jeff Axline and his team provided an endless stream of delish bites including lobster rolls topped with tiny pink flamingos. 

While the focus was clearly on fun, there was a serious side to the partying which was expected to raise a handsome sum for the Komen Foundation. Lia Vallone, head of the Komen Young Professionals Council, manned the Komen booth with pals from the group that is focused on networking and women's health education. "So many of our members' families have been touched by breast cancer," she said. "We're so fortunate to have Hotel ZaZa's support."

Contributing their personal sparks to the partying were Dr. Amanda Parker, Richard Campo, Lindsey George, Will Walsh, Jeremy Smith, Esther Vertrees and James Janner, Brandi Holmes and Samuel Williamson, Jenny Weber, Bethany Buchanan, Chita Johnson, Karli Gillum, Ceron and Brittany Henry.
