Have you heard about it yet?  What a fantastic idea!  The weekend of February 17-19, 2012 as you enjoy yourself out and about the two downtowns of Bethlehem, shopping or dining, you can be helping to support your favorite charity as well! What a genius way to support local businesses and support causes in need!  They’ve made it incredibly easy too!  All you’ve got to do is select a charity to shop for, and print their “Shop for a Cause Purchase Form”. Bring the form with you when you shop and dine in the participating businesses, Friday, February 17-Sunday February 19, and have the business owner fill out your form. 10% of your purchases will then go back to your specific cause!

These shops and restaurants in either the The Historic Downtown Shopping District or Southside Shopping and Arts District businesses invite you to Shop for a Cause Weekend.
