If you’re like me, you’ll jump at any excuse to go shopping. Well, this isn’t just any excuse. This trip to the mall is for a great cause, 25 of them actually.
Known for its airy and inviting ambiance, The Gardens Mall has been a must-visit shopping destination in South Florida since 1988. And this year they have something huge to celebrate.
The mall will commemorate its 25th anniversary with the launch of “25 Years of Giving.” The campaign will include a series of stylish events throughout the year, including fashion shows, cocktail parties, culinary events and more.
