Belk Fall Charity Sale on November 6 to Benefit Local Charities and Schools

Spring Charity Sale raised more than $4.5 million for hundreds of nonprofits throughout the South

Belk invites local charities, schools and other nonprofit organizations to participate in its Fall Charity Sale on November 6. The event will once again benefit communities throughout the company’s 16-state market area. The last Belk Charity Sale held May 1, 2010, raised more than $4.5 million for hundreds of participating nonprofit organizations.

Charity Sale tickets are available at all Belk stores for participating local, nonprofit organizations to sell in advance of the event. All proceeds from each $5 ticket sold will be retained by the charity. Beginning Friday, October 29, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores with all donations equally divided among the participating charities and schools from each local store. There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, and no limit to the amount of money that can be raised. Belk provides the tickets and collateral materials at no cost to the participating groups.

The four-hour, in-store shopping event on November 6 offers an excellent fundraising opportunity for participating organizations and a chance for customers to support their favorite charities and take advantage of special discounts on purchases made during the event.

In exchange for a $5 donation, customers will receive a ticket admitting them to the Charity Sale on November 6 from 6 to 10 a.m., entitling them to merchandise discounts ranging from 20 to 70 percent on purchases throughout the store, including special savings on rarely discounted brands. Customers will also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more at the event, and Belk cardholders will receive double Rewards points for card purchases. Belk Elite cardholders will receive triple Rewards points for card purchases.

When the doors open at 6 a.m. on November 6, the first 100 customers in each store will receive a free Belk gift card and three lucky winners company-wide will receive a gift card valued at $1,000. In addition, all participating charities and schools will be automatically registered to win one of three $1,000 donations from Belk in a company-wide drawing.

The event, held semi-annually since Fall 2007, has raised a total of more than $22 million for participating nonprofit organizations in Belk markets throughout the Southeast.

Charity representatives interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more information.

I am writing on behalf of Klik Marketing who is helping sponsor an event in Atlanta, Georgia. It's called Jenny's Walk to Defeat ALS and it is on November 6th at Centennial Park. We have put together a press release that I think it would be great fit for this blog.

Please let me know if you have any questions or require any additional information. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Jenny's Walk to Defeat ALS

Join Jenny and Team DeMario for the walk to defeat ALS on November 6, 2010 at Centennial Park in Atlanta, GA. As ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), hits close to home for Jenny, it affects many people each year in the United States and all over the world.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a rapidly progressive and fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells. Those with ALS lose the ability to control their voluntary muscles. The disease makes it difficult for people to swallow, speak, walk and breathe. Every 90 minutes, a person is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes, someone loses the battle to the disease.

This walk was started by Jenny and her family in loving memory of her father. This will be the 3rd year that they will do the walk for ALS. This is an incredible opportunity to support those who are affected by ALS, raise money for the cause spread awareness, and ultimately find a cure for this crippling and fatal disease.
