Saks Fifth Avenue is hosting its 11th annual Key to the Cure gala at 6:30 p.m., October 6 at the Saks Fifth Avenue store, located at The Fashion Mall at Keystone. The black-tie gala will include dinner, dancing, entertainment, a high-end fashion show and live and silent auctions.
This year’s gala is being led by co-chairs, Larry Griggers, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, along with Parul and Niraj Gupta, M.D., St. Vincent. Curtis Spaulding, General Manager, Saks Fifth Avenue, Indianapolis, is also serving as honorary co-chair. Proceeds from the event will be used to enhance radiation therapy services at St. Vincent Cancer Care. Renovations include expanding anesthesia to be offered to the most vulnerable cancer patient populations across the state including children to specialized breast care patients, as needed during their cancer treatments.
“Key to the Cure is one of our largest fundraising events and it has been tremendously impactful for cancer patients at St. Vincent,” said Curtis Spaulding. “It’s been uplifting to meet so many cancer survivors over the years, but survival is not the case for everyone. Until there is a cure, this is our way of supporting the fight against cancer.”
The public can support this cause by purchasing Key to the Cure t-shirts for $35 or place a bid for some cool auction items at https://qtego.net/qlink/kttc.. For more information about how to donate to cancer programs at St. Vincent visit https://give.stvincent.org/kttc or call 317-338-5090.
