Celebrated designer Peter Dundas of Emilio Pucci created a limited-edition T-shirt exclusively to benefit Key To The Cure that will retail for $35 at Saks Fifth Avenue stores, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores and online at saks.com. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each shirt sold will be donated to EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund, benefiting charitable programs dedicated to finding new detection methods, better treatments and eventual cures for women’s cancers. The T-shirt debuts at Saks Fifth Avenue on October 1.
“I’m so honored to join the Entertainment Industry Foundation and Saks Fifth Avenue in their continued efforts to raise funds for promising scientific research through EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund,” said Jennifer Aniston. “My hope is that everyone will contribute to this worthy cause by purchasing a Key To The Cure T-shirt designed by Emilio Pucci.“
Steve Sadove, Chairman and CEO, Saks Fifth Avenue, said, “We are so pleased to be partnering with Peter Dundas and Emilio Pucci, EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund, and Jennifer Aniston this year for Key To The Cure. In our 15th year, the continued support of our charity affiliates and efforts made by our clients, vendors and associates have proven to be a true testament to the Key To The Cure legacy.”
“I am proud for Emilio Pucci to be part of such an important initiative with Saks Fifth Avenue. I think every living person has been touched by this disease through the illness or even loss of a friend or a family member. I have. It would seem that in 2013 this would no longer be a worry, but it very much is and so the fight continues,” stated designer Peter Dundas.
Ms. Aniston will appear in a national public service announcement (PSA) wearing the Emilio Pucci limited-edition T-shirt. The Key To The Cure PSA will appear in major fashion and lifestyle magazines in September and October. Saks Fifth Avenue’s charity shopping weekend will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 17 to 20, at all Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores nationwide and on saks.com. During the shopping weekend, 2% of participating vendor sales up to $500,000 will be donated to our national beneficiary, the Entertainment Industry Foundation.
Saks Fifth Avenue initiated its charity shopping weekend in 1999. Since then, the company has donated more than $33 million to women’s cancer research and treatment organizations throughout the United States. Organizations benefiting from these funds include: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation; EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund; Cleveland Clinic; Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Nevada Cancer Institute and many others.
