Chico's to support innovative cancer research

Chico's is pleased to announce that it will join forces with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) to support innovative cancer research.

The heart has always been at the core of Chico's, whose passion for charitable giving has continued to grow for over 30 years.  For this collaboration, the company created an exclusive, limited-edition anniversary scarf in Chico's iconic leopard print, which will be sold at Chico's boutiques and outlets across the country.

With every limited-edition leopard print scarf purchase from now through October 31st, Chico's will donate $10 to Stand Up To Cancer (up to $150,000), the charitable initiative that supports groundbreaking cancer research focused on getting new treatments to patients quickly.

For 30 years, Chico's has helped women look as fabulous as they feel. Chic silhouettes, signature prints, artisan jackets, and wrinkle-free Travelers collection have built a passionate following—and the combination of fabulous style, one-of-a-kind details, and amazing, personal service has captured the hearts of women nationwide.

"I'm thrilled about our new collaboration with Stand Up To Cancer," says Cinny Murray, Chico's Brand President. "It's a fabulous movement doing amazing work to support innovative cancer research. Chico's, together with our customers, is happy to have this opportunity to support such an important effort."

Stand Up To Cancer is changing the culture of cancer research through its unique funding model, which facilitates collaboration among scientists in different disciplines and at different institutions. Five hundred researchers at 101 institutions are currently involved in SU2C-funded research.

"We are deeply grateful to Chico's for helping get Stand Up To Cancer's core message out to shoppers all over the country: that each and every one of us can make a difference in this fight," said SU2C Co-founder Sherry Lansing.
