Charity tickets are available at the Bainbridge Belk for participating local, non-profit organizations to sell in advance. All proceeds from each $5 ticket sold will be retained by the charity.

Tickets may also be purchased at Belk with all donations equally divided among the participating charities and schools.

In exchange for a $5 donation, customers receive a ticket admitting them to the charity sale on Nov. 6 from 6 to 10 a.m., entitling them to merchandise discounts ranging from 20 to 70 percent on purchases throughout the store, including savings on rarely discounted brands. Customers will also receive $5 off their first purchase of $5 or more at the event, and Belk cardholders will receive double rewards points for card purchases. Belk Elite holders will receive triple rewards points when using their card.

The first 100 customers in the store at 6 a.m. Nov. 6 will receive a free Belk gift card and three lucky winners company-wide will receive a gift card valued at $1,000.
