Macy's In-Store Shopping Event to Raise Funds for HIV/AIDS Research

LAS VEGAS — Macy’s is hosting a Passport In-Store shopping event on Saturday, Sept. 29 at its Las Vegas store (located at the Fashion Show Mall). The shopping event will benefit local HIV/AIDS research, care, prevention and education programs. Shoppers can buy a $10 ticket and save 10-20 percent on most Macy's purchases. All ticket proceeds go directly to participating HIV/AIDS organizations. Tickets can be purchased from participating Macy's stores or organizations.

This year marks the silver milestone of Macy's Passport, commemorating a quarter-century of men's, women's and children's fashion, state-of-the art theatrics, celebrity guests and dedication to the HIV/AIDS community. Since the onset of the AIDS pandemic in the early 1980's, Macy's — in partnership with its sponsors, top designers and community organizations — has raised invaluable awareness and, with proceeds from this year, $25 million toward saving lives.

"People of conviction began this fight and people of compassion must keep it going — until education and treatment are available to all, until no child grows up orphaned and alone because of HIV, until there is finally a vaccine that will rid or world of this devastating disease,” said Robert Mettler, chairman and CEO, Macy's West.

Macy's, the largest retail brand of Macy's, Inc., delivers fashion and affordable luxury to customers at more than 800 locations in 45 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam. Offering distinctive assortments including exclusive fashion and home brands, Macy's stores are operated by seven regionally based retail divisions – Macy's East, Macy's Florida, Macy's Midwest, Macy's North, Macy's Northwest, Macy's South, and Macy's West – and an online store at macys.com.

Now in its 25th year, Macy's Passport is the result of fashion and compassion joining forces for the common good. It is fitting that this year's event will raise an estimated $25 million on its 25th anniversary. It's an excellent example of an industry and a company consistently focusing on an important cause.
