Friends Helping Friends fundraiser planned Oct. 18

The Butler Breast Cancer and Women’s Cancer Support Group, in partnership with Boscov’s, will hold its annual Friends Helping Friends fundraising event Oct. 18.

During store hours, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Boscov’s shoppers can stop by the shoe department to get a $5 discount shopping pass that can be used storewide.

Boscov’s provides the $5 passes to nonprofit 501(c) and 170 (c)(1) organizations who register to participate in the annual Friends Helping Friends event. Organizations can sell the passes to their supporters and keep 100% of the $5 donation to further their causes. Shoppers in all Boscov’s stores that day can use the passes to gain access to 25% off the chain’s lowest sales prices.

Cheryl Schaefer, head of the Butler Breast Cancer and Women’s Cancer Support Group, said the fundraiser is an important one for her group, which supports women with cancer treatment expenses.

This year, Schaefer said her organization also will sell tickets for $50 and $100 Boscov’s shopping passes.
