Bloomingdale’s is hosting a shopping fundraiser to benefit the Santa Monica-Malibu Education Foundation’s Dollar a Day Campaign at its Santa Monica Place location on Saturday.

The foundation launched the Dollar A Day Campaign last December with the goal of raising $4 million by 2014 to support the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District’s new centralized fundraising model.

This year the foundation is asking district families to donate a dollar a day ($365 by the year’s end) for every student in their household.

Those in attendance are invited to enjoy refreshments and shop Bloomingdale’s personal shopping services and beauty treatments while raising funds for a worthy cause.

Bloomingdale’s will donate 10 percent of store-wide purchases during the event and an additional $5,000 to the Dollar A Day Campaign.

A special presentation hosted by Superintendent Sandra Lyon will elaborate on how funds from the event will be spent. Musicians from the Santa Monica High School Chamber Orchestra will perform, led by Joni Swenson.

The fundraiser is scheduled for 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. with the celebration presentation beginning at 3 p.m. For more information, contact Hallie Freeman (310) 985-6403.
