How witty... My friend sent me this press release from Mario's.

MAR.10 spells MARIO

Join Mario’s for 10 days of family, fun, and fashion!

From March 1-10 customers who spend $200 or more will receive 10 percent of their purchase total back in the form of credit on a Mar.10 gift card. On March 10, customers get the opportunity to spin Mario’s special “Prize Roulette Wheel” and wheel to win merchandise from Dolce & Gabbana, Prada, Ermenegildo Zegna, Armani Collezioni, and more from Mario’s collection of esteemed vendors (every spinner is a winner; one spin per customer; over $50,000 in merchandise!).

Customers will receive a commemorative “MAR.10 spells MARIO” T-shirt when they make a donation to the Coyote Central Foundation (Seattle) or Children's Healing Art Project (Portland). Buy a raffle ticket for fabulous Mario’s prizes, and proceeds will benefit the charities.

In Seattle, the charity selected as a benefactor is Coyote Central, an organization that creates creative learning opportunities for an ethnically-diverse group of junior-high youths. In Oregon, the charity selected is Children’s Healing Arts Project (CHAP), dedicated to healing children by leveraging the creative and restorative power of art. More info below.

March 1 (Saturday) - special in-store appearances from kids who receive support from Coyote Central (Seattle) and CHAP (Portland)
March 8 (Saturday) - family day at Mario's! Bring the kids and enjoy entertainment from skilled magician and get pictures taken with Bigfoot :-)

*sigh* 10% off really isn't much.. Basically no tax. Hmmm. Let's go to the Oregon stores.. Then you can save on tax too!

Thanks Nicole!
