Westfield Palm Desert Hosts Series of Events and Programs to Celebrate Back to School
Local students are returning to school soon, and Westfield Palm Desert is running a series of fun events and programs from July 8 to August 8 to send them to classrooms in style.
The events kick off with a back-to-school themed craft market on July 24 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Customers can purchase school supplies, clothing, accessories and lunchbox-worthy snacks from over 40 local vendors.
On the same day, the mall also launches its first indoor school drive “Stuff the Bus”, supporting children from the non-profit organizations Martha’s Village & Kitchen and Family YMCA of the Desert.
Plus, families can enter to win a “We’ve Got Your Back (pack)” raffle featuring a custom-designed backpack by artist ApersOne from Flat Black Art Supply, cool school supplies, and $ 750 in cards. – gifts from Westfield retailers.
On July 31, the center is partnering with Flat Black Art Supply to host a BTS ‘Lock It Up’ party, featuring live music from DJ Contraz, giveaways, weekend-only deals as well as a 3D mural made from vintage school lockers and interactive “Make Your Mark” wall art by Rick Rodriguez Creative.
“This year, Back to School aims to celebrate all that is local – the local style, emerging brands, community organizations and desert artists,” said Franchesca Forrer, Marketing Director of Westfield Palm Desert. “From collecting school supplies for kids across the wilderness to art created in partnership with families, we wanted to celebrate all that is unique about the kids of Coachella Valley.”
