Saks Philanthropic Corporate Philosophy Produces a Winning Partnership during Shopping Event
May 2nd, 2012
Due to the overwhelming support of our donors and the efforts of the Saks Fifth Avenue Naples sales staff, David Lawrence Foundation just received a generous check for $9,370 from Saks, one of our longtime, steadfast corporate partners.
The funds were raised during a creative initiative called “Support Your Favorite Charity @SAKS” shopping event held in February. Throughout the month, their hardworking sales staff helped guide shoppers to support mental health and substance abuse services in Collier County by encouraging them to register their Saks credit card and designate David Lawrence Center as their charity of choice. Once registered, Saks donated 5% of all purchases made on the card back to our organization – a win win for shoppers, DLC and the philanthropic luxury retailer.
To further energize sales and support specifically for our charity, Saks also hosted a private luncheon and trunk show with Italian jewelry designer Temple St. Clair.
A special thank you to those who shopped for DLC and Saks team members Kellie Jacoby, JoAnn Walsh and Luis Otero for making this event such a great success.
