The Peachtree Corners store, along with all of the Belk stores nationwide, is hosting a four-hour, in store shopping event on Saturday, April 21 from 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. to help participating nonprofit organizations raise money.
Participating organizations will be selling $5 tickets to their supportors during the event. And on the morning of the Belk Charity Sale, the first 100 customers to arrive at the store will receive a Belk gift card ranging in value from $5 to $100.
Customers will also have a chance to win one of three $1,000 Belk gift cards to be awarded companywide.
Last year's charity sale supported thousands of non-profit organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the Boy and Girl Scouts of America, the American Red Cross, local school athletic organizations and local churches.
In 2011, more than 7,800 nonprofit organizations raised more than $5 million through Belk's Spring Charity Sale.
"There is no limit to the number of organizations that can participate, the number of tickets they can sell, or the amount of money they can raise - so this is a win-win for eveyone," said Jessical Graham, Belk vice president of communications and community relations.
Charity representatives interested in taking part in this fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more infomation. To participate, organizations must have an IRS Section 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Serivce.
