This is a time for Terry Darland to savor.
As she prepares to cap her 42-year beauty career with plans to retire as president of North America for Christian Dior Perfumes and Cosmetics at the end of the year, the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. and LVMH veteran was honored Thursday night during a virtual broadcast of the Dream Ball, the annual fund-raising event in support of the Look Good Feel Better Foundation.
Darland, who received the Beauty Care award, has been involved with the the event for more than 20 years, stepping up to co-chair, then chair. The fund-raising veteran expects to maintain a good deal of momentum, despite the lack of a live venue. “Last year, they raised $1.2 million at a live event, but this year we set a goal for the virtual event at $750,000, figuring that it’s hard to sell tables when you’re not there,”
