34th Street Weekend Sale Pick: Macy's Shop For a Cause

#1. Macy's Herald Square
Our one and only pick this weekend, because Macy's tomorrow is hosting their Sixth Annual Shop For A Cause benefiting charities across the country. I'm going to let the press release do the talking because I'm in the middle of a beach evacuation. But don't let that nasty Irene stop you from shopping, saving, and doing your part for your favorite charity tomorrow! 

On Saturday, August 27, 2011, Macy’s will host its 6th annual Shop For A Cause benefiting charities across the country. This one day event is a fun and effective way for non-profits, school booster groups and other charitable organizations to raise funds and awareness for their causes.

By purchasing a $5 shopping pass from any participating organization, customers support their favorite causes and receive 25% off most regular, sale and clearance purchases in the store or online all day Saturday, August 27. The shopping pass offer is also valid on most brands that are usually excluded (such as Coach, INC, designer handbags & sportswear, Ralph Lauren, etc.) Plus, customers have the chance to win a $500 shopping spree.

In addition, Shop For A Cause passes are being sold at all Macy's stores through Aug. 27, and at on Aug. 27. All of the passes sold in store and online will benefit the March of Dimes, a leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health.

We encourage you to rally your readers and join us for Shop for a Cause! In fact, we’d love to help you support your local charity too! Please send us a link to your post, which includes the charity you’re supporting, so we can tweet about it from our @MacysEvents profile!
