All proceeds go to benefit the South Carolina Ovarian Cancer Foundation and its mission to educate and support women and cancer research.

This is not Patrick's first foray into charitable giving for cancer-related causes. His mother successfully overcame ovarian cancer, and earlier this year, the Grey's Anatomy hunk helped found the Central Maine Cancer Center in his home state.
