Key to the Cure
A sensational $593,000 was raised by Saks Fifth Avenue’s 2011 KEY TO THE CURE.
With the support of 2011 EIF ambassador Jennifer Hudson, through sales of the limited edition T-shirt designed by Elie Tahari and a four-day shopping weekend. One hundred percent of the proceeds have been donated to EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund, which benefits more than 50 charitable programs dedicated to finding new detection methods, better treatments and eventual cures for women’s cancers.
“Women’s cancers have touched all of our lives,” asserts Grammy and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson. “I am proud to join the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Saks Fifth Avenue in their efforts to raise funds for important research through EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund." The Saks Fifth Avenue KEY TO THE CURE charity shopping weekend, the company, together with its vendors and partners, has endured 13 plus years, and has raised an incredible $30 million for cancer research, we look forward to our 2012 collaboration!
