On Saturday, October 13 from 10am-5pm, Allegro: Evanston will be participating in Central Street’s annual Community Day event with the purpose of….you guessed it. Giving back to the community! The idea behind Community Day is pretty great (you’re giving back AND supporting local business while checking those to-do’s off of your shopping list), and it’s also pretty simple. Just print out the flyer below or pick one up in participating shops, then bring it in to any one of those 20 shops you see listed; including Allegro! When you make your purchase, the participating shop will donate a portion of that purchase to the participating organization of your choice, also listed on the flyer. Donation amounts range from 10%-20%.
Allegro will donate 15% of your purchase, but we’re also giving you the opportunity to throw in a little more: if you’re a student that normally receives a 10% discount with us, you can also opt to donate that 10% discount in addition to the first 15%. This means that in total, you’ll be donating a whopping 25%! Awesome.
We’re also very happy to announce that one of this year’s participating community organizations is Fisher Dance Center‘s non-profit, The Dance Foundation! Throughout Community Day, we’ll be presenting exclusive excerpt performances by FDC in the boutique; come see the Fisher dancers perform at 11am, 12pm, 3pm & 4pm.
