Three dynamos have teamed up in the fight against cancer. Actress Uma Thurman was named the new ambassador for Saks’ Key for the Cure annual event this year. Donna Karan designed the T-shirt to raise funds that will help eradicate the disease. The designer says, “[f]or me, it’s not just about dressing women; it’s about addressing the issues that are so important to all of us.” Uma Thurman takes the mantle from model Heidi Klum who served as ambassador last year. “Everyone I know has been affected by breast cancer one way or the other,” says Thurman. “It is vital that we work toward a cure as well as develop more accurate and advance testing.” The long-sleeved T-shirt has a great graphic print with various shades of pink. It will retail for $35 each and sold at Saks Fifth Avenue stores, and online at Saks.com. Get ready to start shopping for a good cause on October 1st when it goes on sale. All of the proceeds raised will go to local charities. The annual shopping event will be from October 19th – 24th.
