Join Me to Benefit Women's Cancer Programs

Join me on October 20 for the regional kick-off party for the Key to the Cure. Suburban Hospital and Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase will host the event marking the start of a national three-day shopping event designed to raise funds for cancer research and treatment. I'm proud to be the honorary chair and an honoree at this festive event which will feature the latest styles and fashion trends, culinary samplings from 20 of the area's top restaurants, specialty cocktails, entertainment and the Key to the Treasure raffle box, all for the benefit of women's cancer programs at Suburban Hospital. In addition to the direct proceeds from the October 20th event, two percent of retail sales generated through the weekend (October 21-23) will be donated to the Suburban Hospital Cancer Care Program. Over the past decade, this event has raised more than $900,000 to help serve women in the Montgomery County/DC community. This year, Suburban Hospital and Saks Chevy Chase expect to surpass the $1 million mark.
