By on November 8, 2021 0 535Views

Scottsdale Fashion Square, the valley’s iconic prestigious mall, is celebrating six decades of bringing the latest and greatest trends in fashion to Arizona.

Since its inception in 1961, the Scottsdale shopping destination has been a popular location for important personal and home purchases, dinners out and movie dates. The “Diamond in the Desert” is celebrating their milestone by partnering with some of the state’s greatest charities.

For 60 days, starting Oct. 15 through Dec. 15, shoppers can use their purchase power to benefit local charities through their “Shop It Forward” program.

Giving Back

To celebrate the many nonprofit partners, the center is calling upon shoppers to pay it forward through its “Shop it Forward” program which is running now through Dec. 15.

Shoppers are asked to log their receipts from any Scottsdale Fashion Square retailer and restaurant center-wide, over the 60-day period which will earn points for the participating nonprofit partners. Six community partners will be vying for shopper-generated points that will result in donations ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 per nonprofit, up to $25,000 total.
