Belk’s Charity Sale from 6-10 a.m. on May 3 will once again benefit local charities, schools and nonprofit organizations throughout the company’s 16-state market area, according to a news release.

The four-hour in-store shopping event provides an outstanding fundraising opportunity for participating organizations and a chance for customers to support worthwhile charities and take advantage of special discounts on purchases made during the event.

In return for a $5 donation, customers will receive a ticket admitting them to the Charity Sale on May 3 and entitling them to merchandise discounts ranging from 20 to 50 percent on purchases throughout the store (excluding cosmetics and fragrances).

Customers also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more at the event, and Belk cardholders will receive double points for card purchases.

Participating local charities will sell the charity sale tickets in advance of the event and the proceeds from each $5 ticket will be retained by the charity. Tickets may also be purchased at the store, with all donations divided among the participating charities and schools.

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 tickets and collateral material at no cost to the participating nonprofit organizations.

In addition, participating customers can register to win one of four $1,000 Belk shopping sprees, and all participating charities and schools will automatically be registered to win a $1,000 donation (a total of four will be awarded).

Charity representatives interested in taking part in this one-of-a-kind fundraising event should contact their local Belk store manager for more information. In order to participate in the Belk Charity Sale, organizations must have an IRS 501(c)(3) designation.
