Mark this charitable event on your social calendar, which is a means of raising funds for a most wonderful cause of our marine friends. It will start at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 28th. Enjoy two full hours of partying in style with festive cocktails, culinary masterpieces ready for your taste testing, a lavish raffle with unique prizes from Hamilton Jewelers, The Honda Classic, Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach and so many more. Live entertainment will spice up the evening.

As the American poet, Bill Copeland, once put it, "Be like the turtle - at ease in your own shell." This saying becomes reality as each of the couples combine couture, compassion and personal style, and pay homage, in their own special way, to those beloved creatures that we have come to know as the sea turtle, magnificent in movement.

The local personalities will be modeling the latest trend-setting fashion from Michael Kors, Lilly Pulitzer, Saks Fifth Avenue, J.McLaughlin, Vineyard Vines, and other favorites. If you see an outfit that you can just not live without, it will be available right there at The Gardens Mall in these specific stores.

“Saving the sea turtles is always in style,” says Jack Lighton, president and CEO of Loggerhead Marinelife Center, and the event’s master of ceremonies. “We are thrilled to partner with The Gardens Mall and PNC Bank on this inaugural event, where spectacular fashion and charitable giving coincide.”
