Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Vanessa Bayer, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost have been named as the EIF ambassadors for Saks Fifth Avenue’s 2014 Key To The Cure campaign, representing talent from Saturday Night Live’s past and current casts shot by famed SNL photographer Mary Ellen Matthews. Celebrated New York designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of rag & bone have created the limited-edition tee exclusively to benefit the campaign, which coincides with the Emmy Award-winning show’s 40th Anniversary season.

The shirt will retail for $35 at Saks Fifth Avenue stores and online at saks.com and saksoff5th.com. 100% of the proceeds from each shirt sold will be donated to  a nationally recognized cancer research facility (depending on the Saks location).

SNL cast mates will appear in a national public service announcement (PSA) wearing the rag & bone limited-edition tee. The Key to the Cure PSA will appear in major fashion and lifestyle magazines throughout the month of October.
