On Tuesday night, Bill Belichick and Linda Holliday were honored guests at the Breast Cancer Research Foundation‘s 14th annual Boston Hot Pink Party, where they were presented with the Carolyn Lynch Humanitarian Award for their work to advance breast cancer research.

Breast cancer survivor Paqui Kelly and her husband, Notre Dame football head coach Brian Kelly, presented the award. Other notable guests — of the gala’s 450 at the InterContinental Boston — included newly-retired Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and model Camille Kostek, as well as former Patriots defensive coordinator (and current Detroit Lions head coach) Matt Patricia and his wife, Raina Patricia.

Some musical entertainment was provided by The Flutie Brothers Band, which includes former Boston College and Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie on drums.

The event reportedly raised more than $2 million for breast cancer research.
