Ascend Announces New Fundraiser with Safeway

DENVER, CO – Ascend Performing Arts is pleased to announce that we are now offering Safeway Reloadable Gift Cards in the BKMarketplace that benefits the Blue Knights.  Every time you load up your card to purchase gas, prescriptions or groceries at participating stores, Ascend Performing Arts will receive 5% of the total amount back! 


Safeway is an American chain of grocery stores that has been in business for over 100 years. Safeway gift cards are also accepted at Vons, Pavilons, Dominick’s, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Carrs, Pak’n Save Foods, and Genuardi’s.

This is an easy way to make money for Ascend and your favorite ensembles, while doing something you’d be doing anyway—buying groceries!

grocery store produce aisleSimply purchase the card through our store, then take it with you the next time you go shopping. Prior to checking out, load the card with any amount (up to $500 at a time) and then use it to pay for your purchases. You can load your card at the Customer Service counter, but as there is a 5 minute delay for processing it’s easiest to just ask your cashier to load it with your specified amount in a separate transaction before you buy your groceries. 

That’s all it takes to give back to Ascend Performing Arts!  Purchase your card today, ($5 is preloaded) and start saving tomorrowRELOADABLE cards CANNOT be purchased at the stores.
