Belk to host annual Charity Day

Nov. 9 event will benefit local schools and charitable organizations

CORBIN — Special to The Times-Tribune

Belk’s fall Charity Sale on Saturday, Nov. 9, provides a unique opportunity for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts of 20-70 percent off of purchases made during the four-hour event from 6-10 a.m. In return for purchasing a $5 ticket, customers get great buys on rarely discounted merchandise and other items throughout the store. Plus, customers receive a $5 credit on Charity Sale purchases completely offsetting the cost of the ticket. Charities get to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from each $5 ticket sold.

The first 100 customers in each store on the morning of Charity Sale will receive free Belk gift cards ranging in value from $5 to $100, and a chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards awarded company-wide.

“Our biannual Charity Sale is a win-win for Belk and the communities we serve,” said Jessica Graham, vice president, communications and community relations at Belk. “The upcoming Charity Sale event on Nov.  9th is a great opportunity for our customers to get great bargains on our latest fall fashions and top brands and at the same time benefit their favorite local charities. It’s one of many ways that Belk reinforces its long-standing commitment to community involvement and charitable giving.”

Charity Sale tickets are now being sold by participating non-profit organizations, and beginning Friday, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores. All revenues from in-store ticket purchases are equally divided among participating charities and schools in each local store. In addition, all Charity Sale participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of three $1,000 cash awards (one in each of the three Belk operating divisions) for their school or non-profit organization.

The Spring 2013 Belk Charity Sale raised more than $5 million for nearly 8,000 schools and community nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in Belk markets, and last year, the two Charity Sale events together raised a total of more than $10 million for participating charities.
