Saks Fifth Avenue Hosts 19th Annual Key to the Cure

Morning event raises funds to fight women’s cancers

The 19th Annual Key to the Cure drew 200 guests to Saks Fifth Avenue on Oct. 6 to support the fight against breast and ovarian cancer. The morning event included breakfast fare prepared by M Catering, a raffle and a fashion show featuring ETRO with Coomi Jewelry.

Jeffrey M. Trent, Ph.D., TGen president and research director, and TGen researchers Dr. Ingrid Hedenfalk and Dr. Muhammed Murtaza spoke about the ongoing efforts in early detection of ovarian cancer, including the development of liquid biopsy. They also addressed the role of the human genome in finding better treatments. The event benefits the ongoing research in women’s cancers at TGen.

Carole Moreno, Jacquie Dorrance and Katie Mueller served as co-chairs.

Saks Fifth Avenue Phoenix is one of 12 Saks stores in the country to host a Key to the Cure event. Since the campaign’s inception 19 years ago, Saks Fifth Avenue has donated close to $40 million to cancer research and treatment organizations throughout the United States.
