NEW YORK, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kay Krill, President and CEO of ANN INC. (NYSE: ANN), the parent Company of Ann Taylor and LOFT, was honored for her outstanding leadership in the fight against breast cancer with the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award from The Breast Cancer Research Foundation ® (BCRF) at the annual Hot Pink Party today in New York City.

Kate Hudson, award-winning actress and Ann Taylor brand ambassador, presented the distinguished award to Krill at the Foundation's cornerstone charity event. This year, the event raised over $5 million. "I am honored to take part in recognizing Kay and ANN INC. for their support of lifesaving breast cancer research," said Hudson. "As CEO of ANN INC., Kay has made it her mission to care about the full lives and well-being of women. That's why much of their charitable work supports women who need it most – including those battling cancer."

Since 2005, ANN INC. has been a committed partner to BCRF, donating a record-breaking contribution of $13.4 million in an effort to help make a positive difference for women who have been or will be touched by this horrid disease. In 2012 alone, ANN INC. donated nearly $4 million to BCRF through its Ann Taylor Cares and LOFT Cares Card programs and products. ANN INC.'s annual contribution currently fully funds 13 BCRF research projects that support lifesaving science across the U.S. and in Canada.

"I am truly honored to receive the Sandra Taub Humanitarian Award on behalf of ANN INC. As a company with a nearly 95 percent female employee base and all-female client base, we're deeply committed to helping women put their best selves forward," said Krill. "Breast cancer touches the lives of so many women, and through our support of BCRF, we are helping to make a positive difference for all of those who have been affected by this horrible disease. I promise to continue to do everything I can to support the work of this amazing organization in the hopes of finding a cure in our lifetime."
