BON-TON STORES COMMUNITY DAY EVENT RAISES OVER $6.5 MILLION FOR LOCAL NON-PROFITS
The Bon-Ton Stores Semi-Annual Community Day Event Generates Donations
Milwaukee, Wisc. (November 30, 2010) – The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. is pleased to announce today that the Company raised over $6.5 million for local non-profit organizations and agencies through its semi-annual Community Day event held on Saturday, November 13, 2010.
To kick-off the holiday giving season, The Bon-Ton Stores, under its eight nameplates: Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Carson Pirie Scott, Bergner’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s, Younkers and Parisian (Detroit-area), held its signature Community Day event on November 13. Through this charitable-giving event, organizations raised donations for important projects and causes in their communities.
The event provides an opportunity for local 501(c)(3) organizations and schools to raise donations needed to support their mission. By selling $5 discount savings booklets and retaining 100% of the donation, local non-profit groups raise money for their charity. In return for their donation of $5 to the organization, customers receive a $10 coupon and multiple discounts to be used on Community Day. Over the past twelve years, The Bon-Ton Stores have helped thousands of local non-profit groups raise over $80 million through the successful Community Day event.
"The Community Day event allows us to make a meaningful impact on thousands of organizations in the markets in which we operate,” said Bud Bergren, President and CEO, The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. “We thank our customers and associates who contributed. We know that fundraising is a crucial activity for local non-profit groups, regardless of their size, and we are honored to support them through this program.”
