Are you wearing red right now?
If not, you may want to change your outfit. Or, you have an excuse to pick up something new.
Today (2/3) is National Wear Red Day. I wanted to remind you that Towson Town Center is hosting a special event from 12-6 pm to raise awareness about heart disease in women and to support Go Red for Women, a foundation created by the American Heart Association.
You can join the fight against the #1 killer of women and help boost the mall’s donation to Go Red for Women. Starting at noon, stop by the Grant Court (Level 1), wearing something red, to have your picture taken and explain why you decided to “Go Red.” For each photo taken, Towson Town Center will donate $1 to Go Red for Women (up to $5,000).
The first 200 people wearing red to pose for a snapshot will receive a FREE gift bag with a $10 mall gift card, American Heart Association giveaways and other special retailer and eatery offers. You must be 18 or older to receive a gift bag and have your photo posted on the mall’s Facebook Page. There will also be free blood pressure screenings and healthy snacks from 12-4 pm.
In the spirit of National Wear Red Day, here are some ideas on how to add red to your wardrobe…
Please see individual stores for information about availability and pricing.
It’s a double header of GO RED events! Tomorrow (2/4), Macy’s is hosting its 5th annual Go Red for Women Health Fair & Fashion Show, in front of its 3rd floor entrance. The fun begins at 10 am.
From 10 am – 12:30 pm, you can get free blood pressure screenings and nutritional counseling. Plus, if you are a heart disease survivor or have adopted a healthier lifestyle, you can tell your story on camera for a special Casting Call.
There will also be prizes and giveaways along with an “Art for the Heart” craft station for kids.
Starting at 1 pm, learn about heart disease prevention and hear from survivors. You can try out some Go Red Zumba moves. Plus, there is a special Go Red Fashion Show. And, you can meet Mix 106 Host Maria Dennis. The event ends at 2 pm.
Now for a GURU tip: Wear RED while you shop at Macy’s through February 5th and get an extra 20% off on most purchases. You’ll get 10% off on fine and fashion jewelry and watches.
Hope you can participate in one or both of the events. Even if you can’t make it, you can still wear red and show your support! GO RED!
