The Dalton Mall, formerly Walnut Square Mall, has launched Color for a Cause, an event that raises funds and awareness in support of local organizations. The event will be at the Mall on Tuesday, March 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. Organizations can visit wecolorforacause.com to register to participate in this year's event. The registration deadline is Jan. 30.
During the event, participating organizations are provided a six-foot mural and coloring supplies. Everyone has two hours to color their mural and shop on behalf of a cause. Patrons can shop anywhere in the mall and show their receipt in center court to earn a point for a participating cause. The mall donates $1 for each point earned, and a $250 prize donation is awarded to the organization with the most points and the winning mural design as determined by local guest judges.
"We are excited to be putting on this exciting event at the mall," said Coles Doyle, marketing director for Hull Property Group, owners of the mall. "We want to bring people together in the mall to inspire shoppers, families and the community. Color for a Cause does just that by bringing awareness to local organizations and providing a fun opportunity to support all the great work they do here in the Dalton community. We want to invite all local organizations to participate in this annual event and we hope to have many different causes represented."
Color for a Cause is held at no cost to participating organizations. Local organizations looking to sign up or learn more can visit wecolorforacause.com or email email@example.com. Color for a Cause is also seeking partnerships with local business sponsors to help grow this community event.
