Belk is currently recruiting local non-profit groups to participate in its semi-annual Charity Sale Fundraiser on April 27. Any non-profit organization with 501c3 status is eligible. Participating charities raise money by selling tickets for $5 each, which entitles purchasers to attend a private 4-hour sale. The entire $5 from every ticket sold goes to the participating charity so it's a great fund-raising opportunity for your church, school or community organization.  The more tickets sold, the more money raised.
