Champions for Charity + Sneakerology
Join us in celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Champions for Charity!®
This annual holiday shopping benefit has been embraced by the community, growing to support over 100 not-for-profit organizations with the participation of over 70 Americana Manhasset and select Wheatley Plaza stores. Much happens during the shopping benefit; charity receptions, complimentary gift-wrapping, personal shopper and concierge services abound. The air is charged with excitement as shoppers purchase holiday gifts knowing they are helping their favorite charities at the same time.
In celebration of our 20th Anniversary, we added an extra day to shop! This year Champions for Charity® will take place from Thursday, December 3 through Sunday, December 6.
In 2014 Champions for Charity® raised $856,922 in total for over 100 participating organizations.
Our goal for this very special year is to raise 1 million dollars.
Since its inception in 1996, Champions for Charity® has raised over 8.5 million dollars. Taking an active role in the community has been an integral part of Americana Manhasset’s mission throughout its 59-year history.
