20th Anniversary of Champions for Charity at Americana Manhasset (12/3-6)!


In less than 2 weeks we can enjoy some guilt-free shopping! Since 1996, Americana Manhasset (and Wheatley Plaza) has been running Champions for Charity, an annual holiday shopping benefit event to raise money for the non-profit community. Basically, you can do your holiday shopping with the comfort of knowing that some of your money is going to benefit various non-profit organizations (over 100) with their missions. Over 70 of its stores participate to support non-profit growth while also making it a memorable experience for the shoppers! This year, they have added an extra day giving us 4 days to enjoy feeling good about our purchases running from Thursday, December 3rd – Sunday, December 6th.


Mentioned on the Manhasset Americana website, there is a lot the shoppers can expect during the charity event weekend, from complimentary gift wrapping to personal shopping and concierge services. Last year’s event weekend raised over $850,000, and over $8.5 million since 1996. This year, Champions for Charity has a goal of reaching $1 million, so get on your shopping boots and hit the ground running!
