by BWW News Desk - Sep 18, 2014

Saks Fifth Avenue announced that Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost have been named as the EIF ambassadors for Saks Fifth Avenue's 2014 Key To The Cure campaign, representing talent from Saturday Night Live's past and current casts shot by famed SNL photographer Mary Ellen Matthews. Celebrated New York designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of rag & bone have created the limited-edition tee exclusively to benefit the campaign, which coincides with the Emmy Award-winning show's 40th Anniversary season. Now in its 16th year, Key To The Cure has taken a new approach, offering a unisex tee for the first time. The shirt will retail for $35 at Saks Fifth Avenue stores and online at saks.com and saksoff5th.com. 100% of the proceeds from each shirt sold will be donated to Tigerlily Foundation, benefiting charitable programs dedicated to finding new detection methods, better treatments and eventual cures for women's cancers. The tee debuts at Saks Fifth Avenue on October 1. Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost will appear in a national public service announcement (PSA) wearing the rag & bone limited-edition tee. The Key To The Cure PSA will appear in major fashion and lifestyle magazines in September and October. Saks Fifth Avenue's charity shopping weekend will take place Thursday through Sunday, October 16 to 19, at all Saks Fifth Avenue nationwide and on saks.com and saksoff5th.com. During the shopping weekend, 2% of participating vendor sales will be donated to Tigerlily Foundation. In the 15 years since the inception of the Saks Fifth Avenue charity shopping weekend, the retailer has raised over $35 million for cancer research. To help raise money and awareness for women's cancers, Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons Galleria will partner with Tigerlily Foundation to host a kickoff event on Wednesday, October 15th. For more information, please contact Carolyn Parish at Carolyn_Parish@s5a.com or 703.269.1208.

These items, curated by Saturday Night Live's Emmy-nominated costume designer Tom Broecker, will be available in Saks Fifth Avenue's New York flagship store and on saks.com during the Key To The Cure shopping weekend, October 16 to 19.
