Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Hamilton Place Mall will serve as the kick off location of the “Give Kids a Winning Chance" Campaign, as part of the CBL Cares platform.  In conjunction with Coca-Cola, CBL malls across the country will participate in the campaign to collect sporting equipment, arts supplies and educational games for Boys and Girls Club of America.

The program will officially kick off August 23 at Hamilton Place in Chattanooga with a special appearance by Elliott Sadler, NASCAR driver.  The kick off will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes games for children, Coca-Cola sampling and an opportunity to win a racing helmet, autographed by Elliott Sadler.  Additionally, there will be opportunities to enter to win private meet and greet passes via the malls website as well.

The “Give Kids a Winning Chance” program will run through September 27 culminating with a finale event that day.    Those interested in participating can stop by the Coca Cola display and donation center located on the upper level near Sears for a list of needed items along with a collection bin.

“We are grateful for CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. and The Coca-Cola Company's generous support, which will help address some of the critical needs our Clubs face each day," said Chad Royal-Pascoe, national vice president corporate & cause partnerships, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. “This program will allow Boys & Girls Clubs to provide kids with the resources they need to achieve great futures as healthy, engaged and successful citizens.”

Several Hamilton Place stores will offer discounts on items purchased within the mall.  Specific information will be available at the display starting August 20.
