Big News….Our 1st Annual Merchant Campaign Has Begun!


We’re pleased to announce the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue Merchant Campaign, a push to open doors for more kids, more often! During the week of August 11th we’ve planned tons of fun events and promotions with all proceeds going directly back to the Club. Check out the schedule of events and jot down some of the fun things you’d like to get involved with. Many of the giving opportunities mentioned below are easy and only require you to go out to eat with the family or see a free movie!

Premier Partners: California Pizza Kitchen, Barnes & Noble, Taco Time, Rock Bottom Brewery, Bellevue Breakfast Club Rotary, T-Mobile and the Microsoft Store in Bellevue Mall have some sweet giving opportunities for YOU. Craving California Pizza Kitchen? Take friends and family for a bite during the week of August 11th. Be sure to mention BGCB, and 20% of your bill will go towards the Club! Barnes & Noble is also offering 20% of sales for the week of August 11th, so buy your summer reading books between August 11th-17th!

On August 12th spend the evening with us at Movies in the Park in Downtown Bellevue Park. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty will be showing and if you come out early you can participate in the Whole Foods “Family Challenge”! Movies in the Park will be donating school supplies and sports equipment to the Club, along with sharing a short Club video before the movie. The movie is free and starts at dusk, hope to see you there!

On August 16th our Club and the Detlef Schrempf Foundation will celebrate as beneficiaries of the annual Taste of Main (TOM) event held in Old Downtown Bellevue. TOM brings together food and wine merchants from all around Bellevue to share samples and giveaways. Buy a passport for $40 and 50% of sales come back to us!


On August 17th Taco Time will donate 50% of all sales to the Club. Rock Bottom Brewery is crafting a specialty batch of ale that will be tapped on August 21st with all proceeds going to the Club. Avid Macy’s shopper? Purchase a Macy’s Shop for a Cause ticket for $5, 100% of proceeds will be given to the Club and the ticket is worth 25% off your Macy’s purchase on August 23rd (applies to all Macy’s nationwide)!


Need a cheap summer activity? Regal Crossroad Cinema 8 runs a summer long promotion showing $1 kid-friendly movies every Tuesday and Wednesday morning! As one of our Patron Partners, Regal is providing five “Walking with Dinosaurs” encyclopedias for our kids to read during Nature Camp (Week 8 of Camp). Campers will then go see the Walking with Dinosaurs movie on August 13th and discuss what they’ve learned. Regal has provided us with a generous donation towards our campaign, so go show them support and head over to the Summer Regal Movie Express!

These are all of the promotions we have scheduled so far, but stay tuned for a full calendar of events! A big thanks to the Charles Schwab for their generous donation, along with Kobe, the Essential Baking Company, Oil & Vinegar, Bfit, Flywheel, UW Bookstore, Panera, Cummnis Chiropractic and Casa D’s Taqueria.

Your support is what helps our programs expand! Not yet involved, but are a local business owner/employee looking for some exposure? The Merchant Campaign is a great opportunity to get involved. Providing promotions that support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue is always a win-win. E-mail Michele Heffron at for more info. We can’t wait to COUNT YOU IN.
