On Friday, actress Uma Thurman was named the ambassador of Saks Fifth Avenue's Annual Key to the Cure event. The annual event will take place this year from October 21-24 and will help raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The new ambassador said of the cause:
"Everyone I know has been affected by breast cancer one way or the other. It is vital that we work toward a cure as well as develop more accurate and advance testing."
As part of her new gig, Uma will appear in the print ads and national PSAs wearing a limited-edition t-shirt designed by Donna Karan.
All proceeds from the $35 shirt will be donated to local charities and will be available starting October 1st.
