Shop to benefit the arts
Go shopping while helping to support Movement Center dance and theatrical programs for keiki.
The center is selling tickets for Macy's Oahu stores' Community Shopping Day. Purchase of a $10 ticket entitles the buyer to a 10 to 20 percent discount on most items tomorrow, as well as the opportunity to enjoy special in-store events, product samplings and more.
While there, enter to win a $500 Macy's Shopping Spree.
All proceeds from tickets sold by TMC volunteers will be donated to TMC, located at 1215 Center St., Suite 211, in Kaimuki. For more information, call 735-8641.
