Macy's launches in-store round-up campaign and hosts Girls Night Out event to support Women's Health and Empower Women in Music

PITTSBURGH, May 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Macy's joins the band of community partners looking to make a difference in the

lives of women. Beginning May 1st through May 15th, Macy's Mall at Robinson will invite customers to round up their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar (up to $.99). All funds raised will go to Magee-Womens Research Institute (MWRI) and help raise awareness and funds for women's health.

"We are extremely grateful for partners like Macy's, who demonstrate a concern for the health and wellness of the women and families they serve, and take a leadership role in helping to give back in order to facilitate meaningful impact in those communities," said Michael Annichine, Chief Executive Officer of Magee-Womens Research Institute.

The evening will feature a fashion show with looks inspired by iconic women in music, Women who Rock VIP ticket giveaways, mini makeovers, and Macy's gift cards for the first 50 attendees.

The winner of the VIP Women who Rock tickets will also receive makeovers the night of the show on May 30th, 2019. 

"Macy's is committed to giving back and creating stronger and brighter communities where we live and work," said Joe Hladiuk, Store Manager of Macy's Mall at Robinson. "We're proud to support initiatives that empower women and raise awareness and funds for women's healthcare."
