Katy Perry Teams Up With FFANY Shoes For Breast Cancer
Singer and designer Katy Perry is lending her support for a cause. She has been named the 2018 PSA ambassador for the 25th anniversary of QVC presents FFANY Shoes on Sale.
Perry, whose eponymous shoe brand launched in February 2017, is continuing her work within the footwear industry and will serve as the ambassador for the annual charity gala, which aims to find a cure for breast cancer.
In a statement, she said, “This is an issue that is near and dear to my heart, especially because my aunt passed away from it in 1986. I have always been proud to support the cause and am grateful to have yet another platform to help find a cure.”
The fundraiser has generated $55 million for first-step breast cancer research, with more than 2 million pairs of shoes donated through the years. This year, the Fashion Footwear Charitable Foundation will be distributing grants to nine leading cancer institutions in the United States.
