The organization will keep all the proceeds of every ticket it sells. By purchasing a shopping pass to the event from Rockdale Special Olympics, customers support the Special Olympic Athletes through funding transportation, providing uniforms and equipment while enjoying a day of spectacular discounts, entertainment, special events. Pass holders will enjoy special discounts on most regular, sale and clearance purchases all day. Some exclusions apply.

“We are so excited about teaming up with Macy’s for this wonderful event. We hope everyone will  come out to support Rockdale Special Olympics while saving money at the same time, it’s a win-win for all.” Erika Sellers, Rockdale Special Olympics

The "Shop for a Cause" event has helped raised more than $38 million for charities across the country since 2006. 

“Macy’s is committed to giving back to our local communities. Our annual Shop for a Cause Program, which has raised more than $38 million for local and national charities in the past five years, is meaningful for us because it gives our customers and associates an opportunity to give back to the local charities, schools and non-profits that matter a great deal to them,” said Martine Reardon, Macy’s Executive Vice President of Marketing.  “We are proud to offer our customers an easy way to make a positive difference while enjoying great savings at Macy’s.”
