Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase will host a kick-off event for its 2012 Key To The Cure campaign with an evening of shopping, entertainment, cuisine from local restaurants, specialty cocktails and the Key to the Treasure Raffle to begin a fabulous shopping weekend benefiting women’s cancer programs at Suburban Hospital’s Breast Center. Over the past decade, this local partnership between Saks Fifth Avenue and Suburban Hospital has raised over $1 million to serve women throughout the Washington Metropolitan area community.
Honorary Chair Dr. Katherine D. Alley, Medical Director Emeritus of the Suburban Hospital Breast Center and event co-chairs Marte Coleman and Nina Snow invite you to join the philanthropic efforts of women all over the country, including actress Penélope Cruz, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) ambassador for Saks Fifth Avenue’s 2012 Key To The Cure campaign and designer Carolina Herrara. Ms. Herrara designed a limited edition T-shirt in honor of the campaign which can be purchased at saks.com.
During a recent interview with Elle, the celebrated designer fittingly described the event as a perfect partnership stating, “It’s wonderful to see both fashion and philanthropy brought together to serve a greater purpose.”
What an excellent opportunity to show your support to women all over our region who are waging a courageous battle against this disease as well as those who have fought and conquered the disease and now are cancer survivors. I cannot think of a better way to put your fashion sense to work and all for a worthy cause.
