West Chester, PA–Get your credit cards ready, for this is dutiful shopping at its best. On Friday, October 15, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., QVC presents “FFANY Shoes on Sale” fundraiser for breast cancer. In just three hours, over 100,000 pairs of shoes will be donated from Via Spiga, Fergie, MICHAEL by Michael Kors, Coach Footwear, AK Anne Klein, among others, with the proceeds going towards breast cancer research and educational institutions. Nine West Footwear Corporation and Brown Shoe Company are the event’s two “Special Pink Benefactors,” each donating approximately 20,000 pairs of shoes from brands such as Fergie, Etienne Aigner, and Carlos by Carlos Santana.
Even better than charitable shopping? Discounts! The shoes will be sold for less than half the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, making this expenditure even more (if possible!) guilt-free. And to keep October’s breast cancer awareness month spirit alive, Fergie’s suede and leather criss-cross high heel pumps and cape clogs patent leather open back clogs will be available in signature breast cancer pink. Dr. Scholl’s sport Mary Janes will have the breast cancer pink ribbon embellished along the strap.
Since no cause is closer to a woman’s heart than breast cancer, QVC and FFANY have ensured that the proceeds from this shoe extravaganza will be put to good use. Famed breast cancer research institutions all over the country, from the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in New York, and all the way to the John Wayne Cancer Institute Breast Center at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, will receive proceeds from the event.
If you happen to miss the October 15 event, QVC.com is featuring a “Shoe of the Day,” from 7a.m. to 9 p.m. (EST) for the rest of the month with the sales benefiting breast cancer.
