GOOD BUYS: October marks the 25th annual National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Visit the NBCAM website for information on events in your area and how you can help in the fight against breast cancer. Plus, check out the organization’s official store to shop a selection of products benefitting the cause. Featuring t-shirts, tote bags, mugs and more provided by official sponsor Bells International, it’s a feel-good gift source for the upcoming holiday season.
THE BIG RACE: This coming Saturday, October 17th is Dallas’ annual Susan G. Komen Race For the Cure. With over 100 events in the United States and across the globe, this inspiring series is the largest of its kind in the world. Visit the Susan G. Komen For the Cure website to learn more about how you can lend your support. Also, click on ShopKomen.com to browse for gifts, clothing and accessories, including t-shirts from Official 2009 Apparel Sponsor Hanes (love this one designed by the lovely Sarah Chalke).
WONDERFUL WEEKEND: Today through Sunday, Saks Fifth Avenue is hosting its annual Key to the Cure shopping weekend. Over the next four days, all Saks stores, Saks.com and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th stores will donate 2% of sales (up to $250,000) to women’s cancer charities. Be sure and pick up an exclusive Michael Kors-designed top when you shop, with over $30 of the purchase price benefitting the cause. (And if it looks half as good on us as it does on spokeswoman Heidi Klum, we may even buy two!) Plus, this Saturday at 2 p.m., Saks Galleria is hosting the Pink Passion Fashion Show presented by Baylor University Medical Center of Dallas. Hosted by MIX 102.9’s Victoria Snee, the show will feature a runway-full of fall trends modeled by cancer survivors. To RSVP, call 972-716-5230.
