One of my most favorite charity shopping events of the year is just around the corner! For this year’s 2014 Key To The Cure campaign, Saks Fifth Avenue is teaming up with ambassadors for the 2014 campaign who include Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteye, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong and Colton Jost.

The past and current SNL cast members will don limited edition T-shirts created by Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of rag & Bone. All of the proceeds from each shirt that is purchased at the Saks Fifth Avenue store in Cincinnati beginning October 16th will be donated to the Cris Collinsworth ProScan Fund.

This organization is dedicated to breast health and provides education, early detection services and even support for breast cancer patients on their journey to healing.

You can also help this cause do even more good in the community by shopping the Saks Fifth Avenue charity shopping weekend October 16th through 19th when 2% of vendor sales at the store will also be donated to the Fund.

The T-shirt will debut at the store on October 1! Be sure to mark your calendars so you can not only get there to get an awesome shirt but so you can help support a really great cause!
