Happy Home Animal Sanctuary Partners with Macy’s for Sixth Annual Shop For A Cause Day
Macy’s helps local charity raise funds and awareness for important cause.
Henderson, NV – August 5, 2011 – Macy’s will partner with Happy Home Animal Sanctuary (H.H.A.S.) to invite
customers to participate in Macy’s sixth annual “Shop for a Cause” charity shopping event. Macy’s 2011 Shop for a Cause will take place on August 27, 2011; customers can purchase tickets now from H.H.A.S. Macy’s Shop for a Cause is a unique one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities’ fundraising efforts, which has helped raised more than $38 million for charities across the country since 2006.
“Macy’s is committed to giving back to our local communities. Our annual Shop for a Cause Program, which has raised more than $38 million for local and national charities in the past five years, is meaningful for us because it gives our customers and associates an opportunity to give back to the local charities, schools and non-profits that matter a great deal to them,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s Executive Vice President of Marketing. “We are proud to offer our customers an easy way to make a positive difference while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
Macy’s has provided Happy Home Animal Sanctuary with shopping passes to sell for $5 each. The organization will keep 100% of every ticket it sells. The more H.H.A.S. sells; the more money it will raise!
By purchasing a shopping pass to the event from H.H.A.S., customers support efforts in saving the lives of abandoned and homeless cats and dogs while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, special events. Tickets can be purchased from any H.H.A.S. volunteer or at the H.H.A.S. Adoption Center located inside Petsmart at 9869 S. Eastern Avenue, Las Vegas. The adoption center is open every Saturday and Sunday from 11 AM to 4 PM. Pass holders will enjoy special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day. Some exclusions apply.
“Happy Home Animal Sanctuary is an all-volunteer organization that is funded entirely through donations and the generosity of those that care. Without these donations and the dedicated volunteers we could not continue our efforts in rescuing abandoned and homeless cats and dogs; provide an open space facility where these “special needs animals can be provided with medical care, love and attention that will ultimately lead to their adoption; or sustain a lifetime sanctuary when adoption isn’t possible. We are very grateful for the opportunity to partner with Macy’s and their Shop for a Cause program.”, said Amber Snethen, founder of H.H.A.S.”
