CELEBRATING 18 YEARS OF GIVING

This annual holiday shopping benefit has been embraced by the community, growing to the support of 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.

Since its inception in 1996, Champions for Charity® has raised over 7.7 million dollars. Taking an active role in the community has been an integral part of Americana Manhasset's mission throughout its 57-year history.
