Belk event to benefit local organizations, schools

POSTED: March 25, 2009 4:00 a.m.

Belk is looking for local charities interested in taking part in its Spring Charity Sale on May 2.


The four-hour, in-store shopping event offers a fundraising opportunity for participating nonprofit organizations and a chance for customers to support charities and enjoy discounts on purchases.


In return for a $5 donation, customers receive a ticket to the sale, set for 6 to 10 a.m. May 2, and entitling them to discounts ranging from 20 to 50 percent on purchases.


Customers also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more, and Belk cardholders will receive double points.


Participating local charities sell tickets in advance and get to keep the proceeds from those sales.


Beginning April 24, tickets may also be bought at the store, with all donations divided among the participating charities.


There is no limit on ticket sales or the amount of money raised. Belk provides tickets and materials at no cost to the participating groups.


The company’s previous charity sale, held Nov. 15, raised more than $4.5 million for participating nonprofit organizations throughout the company’s 16-state market area.


In order to participate, organizations must have an IRS 501(c)(3) designation.


Charities interested in taking part in the fundraiser should contact Suzanna Hobson at, (770) 889-5998, Ext. 202, or or Linda Millar at, (770) 532-7021, Ext. 208, or
