The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc., (NASDAQ: BONT) which operates Bon-Ton, Bergner’s, Boston Store, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Parisian and Younkers stores, announces its Community Days fundraising event to be held on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10. Thousands of non-profit groups have already signed up and are selling savings booklets in their neighborhoods and online to raise money. For the first time, donors can purchase a savings booklet online at bonton.com or communitydayevent.com and direct the funds to the participating organization of their choice. Booklets will be mailed to donors by The Bon-Ton Stores free of charge.
The savings booklets contain over $400 in savings on in-store and online merchandise and can be used during the Bon-Ton Community Days event on November 9 and November 10.
“Providing opportunities to support local organizations is important to our company,” said Brendan Hoffman, president and chief executive officer of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “Community Days provides an easy fundraiser for non-profit groups and valuable shopping offers in our store to those who buy booklets to support them.”
Groups may still sign up now at http://www.communitydayevent.com. Eligible Community Day organizations include 501C-3 nonprofit organizations and schools. Non-profit groups sell savings booklets for a $5 donation to support their group and, in return, the purchaser receives the valuable booklet of offers which instantly pays the donor back with a $10-off on $10 or more item-coupon. The organization keeps 100% of the $5 donation.
