Scottsdale Neiman Marcus gifts to donate funds to Act One

Neiman Marcus has selected 60 items priced for giving.

The store has announced that 10 percent of the sales of each of these items will benefit a local charity supporting arts experiences for youth, according to a press release.

Neiman Marcus Scottsdale has selected Act One as the 2015 beneficiary.

Vendors of the Love to Give collection include Jonathan Adler, Shinola, Yves Saint Laurent, Sisley, Nest, Eddie Borgo, Dannijo, and Stellé Audio. Prices range from $10-$300, the release stated.

Act One’s mission is to provide meaningful arts experiences that enhance the academic and creative potential of children and families in Arizona.

The Act One Field Trip program annually introduces more than 26,000 children from Title 1 schools to cultural venues such as theaters and museums. The students’ art education experience is coordinated and funded by Act One.

Act One also manages the Culture Pass program, which provides library cardholders the opportunity to “check out” passes to arts venues and performances for free.

The program will be going on from Nov. 5-Dec. 24. Items for purchase are available at Neiman Marcus stores and The Scottsdale store is located 6900 E. Camelback Road in Scottsdale.

The Heart of Neiman Marcus is a national corporate giving program that concentrates Neiman Marcus’ charitable efforts on supporting youth arts education. Art is deeply woven throughout the fabric of Neiman Marcus’ heritage, brand and culture. Neiman Marcus is one of the few retailers in the world with its own corporate art collection and internal curator, the release stated.
