Belk in Cumming will hold its annual Spring Charity Sale on Saturday.
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 6-10 a.m., that entitles them to discounts ranging from 20 to 70 percent on purchases.
Customers also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more. Belk cardholders will receive double points and Belk Elite cardholders will receive triple points for card purchases.
In addition, the first 100 customers in the store, 520 Lakeland Plaza, will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $1,000.
All participating charities and schools are automatically registered to win one of three $1,000 donations from Belk in a company drawing.
Participating local charities sell tickets in advance and get to keep the proceeds from those sales.
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.
Also, customers can register to win one of three $1,000 Belk shopping sprees.
The company’s previous charity sale, held Nov. 7, raised more than $4 million for participating nonprofit organizations throughout the company’s 16-state market area.
