Correction: Obit-Evelyn Lauder story

In a story Nov. 11 about the death of Evelyn Lauder, The Associated Press erroneously reported the annual sales for Estee Lauder Cos. For the fiscal year 2011, the company had net sales of $8.81 billion. The $2.48 billion referenced in the story was the reported net sales for the first quarter of the current fiscal year.

Also, the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City opened in 1992, not 2009, and expanded in 2009. The money that Lauder helped raise to build the center was in addition to the $330 million in contributions through June of this year for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
