Shop & Share - August 6, 2016


Join the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County on Saturday, August 6, 2016 for a day of shopping, sharing, and supporting public school children.  The Gardens Mall will donate 5% of the day’s logged sales to support K-12 public education in Palm Beach County. In order for a donation to be credited to the Foundation, shoppers must validate their receipts at the Information Desk, Lower Level, Grand Court (across from Macy’s).   

The event coincides with Tax Free Shopping Weekend August 5th-7th.  No Florida sales tax or local option tax will be collected on sales of clothing, footwear, and certain accessories selling for $100 or less per item, on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less per item, and on the first $750 of the sales price for computers and certain computer-related accessories when purchased for noncommercial home or personal use.

Don’t forget to bring your receipts to the Gardens Mall Information Desk, lower level center court – in front of Macys.  Guests will have the opportunity to spin the prize wheel, get their photo with our surprise celebrity shoppers, and learn more about how to make an impact in our student’s lives with the Education Foundation. 

For more information please contact Natalie Parker at Natalie@EducationFoundationPBC.org or (561) 434-7303.
