Herberger’s plans fund-raising opportunity

Registration is under way for a twice-a-year fund-raising opportunity offered through the Herberger’s store at the Mesa Mall in Grand Junction.

The Bon-Ton Stores, which operates Herberger’s along with other department and furniture stores, has scheduled its next Community Days event for Nov. 14 and 15. Participating organizations sell coupon booklets for the event for $5 and keep the proceeds. The booklets include a coupon offering $10 off any purchase in addition to other coupons offering more than $500 in discounts.

Organizations can sign up online to participate by visiting the Web site at www.communitydayevent.com. Customers can purchase the booklets at stores or online at www.herbergers.com. Customers can donate to any participating organization or the American Heart Association.

The last Community Days event in February raised more than $4.5 million. Since 1999, the Bon-Ton Stores has helped organizations raise more than $166 million.
