The program is scheduled for 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday. The event is a partnership between QVC and the Fashion Footwear Association of New York.

More than 100,000 pairs of shoes from nearly 100 brands will be sold on the show. Among the companies that have donated shoes are Anne Klein, Via Spiga, Coach Footwear and Nine West.

This is the 14th year for "FFANY Shoes on Sale." QVC says its sold more than 100,000 pairs of shoes and donated more than $28 million to breast cancer research in those years.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that nearly 185,000 Americans will develop breast cancer this year. Funds raised during the event will benefit institutions such as The Breast Cancer Research Foundation in New York and The Abramson Cancer of the University of Pennsylvania.
