GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.– Mesa Mall announced earlier this week via social media
that the town center will celebrate Women’s History Month for the community by hosting an event honoring women in the Grand Valley and throughout society. Local artist Lori Ruiz will be at the celebration completing a live painting to represent the month-long observance and local macaron bakery E.A.T. Macs will be at the event as well, selling a variety of flavors of their tasty, homemade treats. This event will take place in Clock Court on Wednesday, March 3 from 1-4 P.M.
Local artist Lori Ruiz is also extending her hand during this time to a local charity, The Latimer House. During the event, attendees and shoppers passing by will have the opportunity to make a digital donation to the cause for a chance to win the painting. The Latimer House of Hilltop ‘assists those who have experienced domestic violence or sexual assault’ and provides resources and services to those in need.
Followers of @shopmesamall on Facebook or Instagram are in for a special treat. The first twenty in line at E.A.T. Mac’s pop-up who mention the post containing the giveaway will receive a free macaron, courtesy of Mesa Mall.
