It’s time for our Second Annual spring Caring and Sharing event. The party is scheduled for Saturday June 1st fro 12-3pm. This was an exciting and fun event last year and, even though it was our first time, it drew a good crowd to the center. We are looking for an even larger crowd this year.
The idea behind this event is to create a festive, fun, party atmosphere and have each merchant pair up with a local non-profit or charity and give them space in front of their store to set up a table and show people what they are all about. At the same time it is an opportunity for the stores and restaurants to get out in front as well and interact with the people going by.
Last year we had participation from almost all the shops in the Calle Real Center and over 45 non-profits.
Halloween Extravaganza, Calle Real Shopping Center Wednesday, Oct. 31, 3-6pm
Caring and Sharing comes to the Calle Real Center!
Mark your calendars for June 2, 2012. From 1-5 in the afternoon the Calle Real Shopping Center, located on Calle Real between Patterson and Fairview Avenues, will be transformed into a “non-profit” showcase and neighborhood party. On that afternoon many of the merchants in the center will be sharing their storefronts with a wide variety of non-profits allowing them a venue to show just what it is that makes these non-profit organizations so valuable to our community.
Not just an educational opportunity, there will be fun activities and a party atmosphere for the whole family, including music, a photo booth courtesy of AMS Entertainment, balloon animals, a fire truck courtesy of SB County Fire, a Sheriffs cruiser, animal rescue and adoptions, food sampling from participating restaurants and much more.
