Suburban Hospital is again partnering with Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase (5555 Wisconsin Ave.) for a three-day shopping event to raise funds for cancer research and treatment.

The regional kick-off party for Key To The Cure will be held Oct. 17 at Saks Fifth Avenue Chevy Chase in an annual event featuring food samples, style and fashion demonstrations and a raffle box to benefit women’s cancer programs at Suburban Hospital.

The event will honor 12 area cancer survivors, led by Dr. Katherine Alley, one of the area’s first to start a dedicated breast cancer practice.

The three-day shopping event means two percent of all retail sales from Oct. 18-21 at Saks Fifth Avenue will go to the Suburban Hospital Cancer Care Program. Suburban is a leading treatment center for breast cancer in Montgomery County thanks to the Cancer Care Program.

The Key To The Cure has raised more than $1 million for the program in the past decade, according to a Suburban Hospital press release.
