Sunday, December 4th 7pm – 10pm
On December 4, 2005, Eastridge Mall will close to the general public, then re-open for the extraordinary night of shopping. Special store discounts, gifts, door prizes, entertainment, and free gift wrapping will all be included to make our shoppers feel like a million bucks. Festival of Giving is designed to help organizations in the Wyoming raise money. Non-profits, churches, schools and hospitals have the opportunity to sell the $5 tickets to the general public with 100% of the proceeds benefiting their organization. Each organization has the opportunity to sell as many tickets as they wish (a limit of 20,000 will be distributed). As we embark on the third year of this event at Eastridge Mall, we will continue our "Trees of Hope" silent auction. Fifteen trees will be decorated at merchants throughout the Eastridge Mall with merchandise, coupons and gift cards. Each tree will be auctioned off, with all proceeds going to the Children's Miracle Network.
Additionally, we will be adding a new event to Festival of Giving this year, "Bring it On". "Bring it On" will allow all dance studios, school organizations and clubs to perform. Each Saturday, beginning on November 5, 2005, Eastridge Mall will host 10 performances. The audience will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite and the winners from each week will showcase again at the finals during Festival of Giving. The winner from the finals will receive a Grand Prize.
Tickets are on sale now. Contact Brandilyn Porter in the Eastridge Mall office for more information.
