Christmas in July!

June 27th, 2011

All the Christmas lovers out there will be happy to hear about this Christmas in July celebration at Short Pump Town Center, July 23 starting at 1 pm till 8pm.

This event is hosted by the Richmond-based band Offering, Short Pump Town Center, 98.9 Liberty, and Richmond Magazine and comes with a great cause, as it is meant to help those in need who use the services of The Central Virginia Food Bank.

November and December are historically popular times for generous outpourings of donations and support, but when the holidays are over the donations slowly dwindle. The event is to help boost generosity and donations by re-creating the holiday season. Shoppers are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or monetary donations.

This is a great chance to shop ’til you drop in a lovely created winter wonderland. Music of the season played by local bands: Cold Harbor, Offering, The Taters, Chris Lucas and Laura Ann Singh while the GMWA Choir will serenade throughout the day. Santa and other holiday characters will drop by for the children to get in the sprit as well. Activities such as face painting, a bounce house, Christmas themed coloring stations, and much more will keep the little ones occupied. Special one-day sales in stores and food and drink samples from the restaurants located in Town Center will also be available. Raffle prizes will be given out every hour on the hour, tickets are $1 and all proceeds go to The Central Virginia Food Bank. Remember you must be present to collect your prize, so don’t stray to far.

This community event is for a great local Richmond cause, so we hope you come out and support The Central Virginia Food Bank because they need donations every month of the year not just during the holidays.
