Saks Fifth Avenue landed a punch against cancer this week by donating $21,819 to the University of Cincinnati Cancer Program and the Barrett Cancer Center.

The money was raised through the store's Key To The Cure national campaign. Saks donated 2 percent of all sales from Sept. 17-20 to the campaign.

The check was presented by Ina Levinson, general manager of Saks in Cincinnati, to UC President Nancy L. Zimpher. Others present at the annual Think Pink ceremony were Eileen Barrett, co-chair of the 2003 Think Pink event, and Cecilia Fenoglio-Preiser, director of UC cancer programs.

"Saks' annual Key To The Cure campaign is an exemplary effort to reach out and make a difference in the community,'' said Zimpher. "UC is very fortunate to have Saks as a partner in the fight against cancer.''

New director

Kathleen Donnellan will bring a background of community service to her new position as director of the Cincinnati Archdiocesan Department of Community Services.

She has been appointed to the position by Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk, replacing Robert Davis, who retired in December.

She had been executive director of Catholic Social Services Southwestern Ohio since 2002. In that role, she also managed the agency's offices in Greater Cincinnati, Hamilton and Springfield, and she supervised directors of St. Joseph Orphanage and Catholic Residential Services.

Donnellan holds a bachelor's degree in social work from Wright State University in Dayton and a master's degree from the Fordham University School of Social Services in New York.

Her work background includes social worker for Catholic Social Services, Miami Valley; associate director of the Department of Social Action for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati; social action coordinator for Catholic Community Services in the Diocese of Lansing, Mich.; associate director of Catholic Social Services, Miami Valley; and director of Catholic Charities of Toledo.

Turner Scholars supported

Local businesses showed their support for students in the University of Cincinnati Darwin T. Turner Scholars program at a fund-raising breakfast last week.

Procter & Gamble gave $60,000, while Kroger sponsored the annual breakfast and donated $15,000.

The program was established in honor of Darwin T. Turner, the youngest person to graduate from UC, at age 16.

The effort is designed to help recruit black students.

Emily Petrovic has earned a degree from Harvard Law School, Cambridge, Mass. The Dixie Heights High School graduate also has a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Kentucky.

The daughter of Vicki Eyerman of Taylor Mill and Stan Petrovic of Covington is practicing law in Chicago.
