Saks Fifth Avenue’s charity shopping weekend will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 17 to 20, at all Saks Fifth Avenue and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH stores nationwide and on saks.com. During the shopping weekend, 2% of participating vendor sales up to $500,000 will be donated to our national beneficiary, the Entertainment Industry Foundation.Saks Fifth Avenue initiated its charity shopping weekend in 1999. Since then, the company has donated more than $33 million to women’s cancer research and treatment organizations throughout the United States. Organizations benefiting from these funds include: The Breast Cancer Research Foundation; EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund; Cleveland Clinic; Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute; Nevada Cancer Institute and many others. About EIF’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund The Women’s Cancer Research Fund, an Entertainment Industry Foundation Program, supports innovative research, education, and outreach directed at the development of more effective approaches to the early diagnosis, treatment and prevention of all women’s cancers. Through an ambitious, first of its kind scientific project, called EIF’s WCRF Biomarker Breast Cancer Discovery Project, world-class scientists have collaborated to identify markers in the blood that signal the presence of breast cancer. These findings could, one day, lead to the development of a blood test to detect breast cancer in its beginning, most-curable stages. The Fund also supports research being conducted at prestigious, National Cancer Institute (NCI)-accredited medical institutions primarily based in Los Angeles.
