Chico’s is pleased to an­nounce that it will join forces with Stand Up To Can­cer (SU2C) to sup­port in­no­va­tive can­cer re­search. The heart has al­ways been at the core of Chico’s, whose pas­sion for char­i­ta­ble giv­ing has con­tin­ued to grow for over 30 years. For this col­lab­o­ra­tion, the com­pany cre­ated an ex­clu­sive, lim­ited-edi­tion an­niver­sary scarf in Chico’s iconic leop­ard print, which will be sold at Chico’s bou­tiques and out­lets across the coun­try. With ev­ery lim­ited-edi­tion leop­ard print scarf pur­chase from now through Oc­to­ber 31st, Chico’s will do­nate $10 to Stand Up To Can­cer (up to $150,000), the char­i­ta­ble ini­tia­tive that sup­ports ground­break­ing can­cer re­search fo­cused on get­ting new treat­ments to pa­tients quickly. For 30 years, Chico’s has helped women look as fab­u­lous as they feel. Chic sil­hou­ettes, sig­na­ture prints, ar­ti­san jack­ets, and wrin­kle-free Trav­el­ers col­lec­tion have built a pas­sion­ate fol­low­ing—and the com­bi­na­tion of fab­u­lous style, one-of-a-kind de­tails, and amaz­ing, per­sonal ser­vice has cap­tured the hearts of women na­tion­wide. "I’m thrilled about our new col­lab­o­ra­tion with Stand Up To Can­cer.” says Cinny Mur­ray, Chico’s Brand Pres­i­dent. “It’s a fab­u­lous move­ment do­ing amaz­ing work to sup­port in­no­va­tive can­cer re­search. Chico’s, to­gether with our cus­tomers, is happy to have this op­por­tu­nity to sup­port such an im­por­tant effort.” Stand Up To Can­cer is chang­ing the cul­ture of can­cer re­search through its unique fund­ing model, which fa­cil­i­tates col­lab­o­ra­tion among sci­en­tists in dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines and at dif­fer­ent in­sti­tu­tions. Five hun­dred re­searchers at 101 in­sti­tu­tions are cur­rently in­volved in SU2C-funded re­search. “We are deeply grate­ful to Chico’s for help­ing get Stand Up To Can­cer’s core mes­sage out to shop­pers all over the coun­try: that each and ev­ery one of us can make a dif­fer­ence in this fight,” said SU2C Co-founder Sherry Lans­ing.
