Every October, people from all walks of life get in their pink to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.Â Saks Fifth Avenue has been hosting their successful shopping, entertainment, food and drink event, Key to the Cure for years and this year, you draw a big pink star on the date of Thursday, October 21st from 6pm-9pm. Tickets are $75 include restaurant fare from Farmers & Fishers, Bangkok Joes, Founding Farmers, Hudson, Georgetown Cupcake, Sushi Ko, Jefferson Hotel Plume, The Melting Pot and more, specialty cocktails, wine, entertainment (usually a fashion show or informal modeling), raffles, prizes, makeovers, discounts, a special tee shirt created especially for Key to the Cure by Donna Karan and more.
There’s not one iota of space in that building that’s not being used. And if you think it’s too early to think “holiday shopping” you are wrong. I guarantee Saks will have their Christmas displays up, so while you are thinking pink … think red and green … and blue and white … but definitely think shopping.
