Saks Fifth Avenue St. Louis will raise money to benefit the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University School of Medicine and Barnes-Jewish Hospital and The Wellness Community of Greater St. Louis in a national shopping event Sept. 17-20.
The event, called Key to the Cure, is a new women’s cancer initiative founded by Saks Fifth Avenue and the Entertainment Industry Foundation to raise funds to combat breast, ovarian, uterine and cervical cancers. Each of Saks’ 62 stores nationwide selects local organizations and donates a percentage of sales during the four days.
Shoppers will be able to purchase a Danskin T-shirt designed for the cause by Stella McCartney, daughter of Linda and Paul McCartney. Saks will kick off with a Fall Fashion Preview Party and a private evening of shopping Sept. 17. Guests will enjoy an open bar, hors d’oeurves, a fall fashion preview and a 15 percent discount while they shop.
In addition, guests will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a his or hers deluxe basket, each valued at more than $2,000. Individual tickets for the kickoff are $40; patron tickets are $75 and include two raffle tickets, a special gift from Saks and in-store recognition.
