Celebrate Blue Ridge Parkway Day at Mast General Stores on Saturday, September 12.

Mast General Stores in Valle Crucis, Boone, Blowing Rock, Asheville and Hendersonville will be donating 10% of their sales for the day to improve camping amenities in the North Carolina campgrounds of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  Each year, Mast Store conducts it "Parkway Day" to celebrate and support the most visited National Park site - the Blue Ridge Parkway.
 
The Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, as the primary fundraising partner,  serves as the facilitator for this celebration and funding conduit to the National Park Service. All funds will be forwarded to the Park to be used to address this special need.
 
Shoppers can be expected to be greeted at store locations to inform and remind them that their shopping purchases will directly support the Park.  Volunteers from Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation will be on hand to promote the special day.
