Belk holds fall charity sale

Belk invites schools and other nonprofit organizations to participate in its semi-annual Belk Charity Sale, Nov. 3, from 6 to 10 a.m. The four-hour, in-store shopping event offers a fundraising tool for participating organizations and an opportunity for customers to support local charities while taking advantage of special discounts on purchases during the event.

Belk Charity Sale tickets are available now to participating nonprofit organizations for sale in advance of the event. One hundred percent of the proceeds from each $5 ticket sold will be retained by the local charity.

There is no limit to the number of tickets charities can sell, or to the amount of money they can raise. Belk will provide tickets and informational materials at no cost to participating organizations.

Beginning Oct. 26, tickets may also be purchased at Belk stores with all revenues from in-store ticket sales equally divided among participating charities and schools in each local store. In 2011, Belk's Charity Sale raised more than $10 million for hundreds of participating charitable organizations throughout the South.
