Outlets at Anthem to hold 11th Annual Shopping Extravaganza


PHOENIX – Outlets at Anthem is set to host the 11th Annual Shopping Extravaganza on Saturday, Oct. 3, starting at 9 a.m.

This signature event raises thousands of dollars every year for charities around the Valley. Seventy-five percent of the money raised from the sale of shopping event tickets will benefit participating Valley charities, as well as 100 percent of the proceeds from a silent auction and additional prize ticket sales.

Guests will purchase a shopping event ticket for $20 to receive exclusive store discounts, a gift bag, a choice of three special “shopper” lunches in a special VIP suite, wine and chocolate tastings, and a chance to win $30,000 in gift cards and prizes in just four hours.

“Our Shopping Extravaganza is a wonderful event for our guests – great deals, chances to win some amazing prizes – but more importantly, it’s a phenomenal way to give back,” said Sallyann A. Martinez, marketing director for Outlets at Anthem. “Last year we had a great turnout and helped raise nearly $52,000 for our participating Phoenix area charities.”

The 25 local partner charities for this year’s event include the America Cancer Society, American Liver Foundation, Anthem Pets Animal Rescue, AZ Friends of Foster Children Foundation, AZ Literacy and Learning Center, Believe in Anthem AZ, Community Health Charities, Daisy Mountain Firefighters Charities, Daisy Mountain Veterans, Deer Valley Education Foundation, Girls Rule Foundation, Global Family Philanthropy, Homes for Heroes, Musical Theatre of Anthem, O’Connor Academy Booster Club, PeppedUp!, Phoenix Youth Ballet Company, ProMusica Arizona, Spotlight Youth Theatre, Standing Proud Pit Bull Rescue, Starlight Community Theater, Team W.I.S.H. AZ, UCP of Central AZ, United Blood Services AZ, and Worldly Kids.

Guests will also have the opportunity to win and be a Diva for the Day. The package, from A Wild Hair Salon & Day Spa, is worth $500 and includes a manicure, pedicure, haircut and color, makeup refresher, and a deluxe 90 minute facial. Other prizes include a Dude for the Day package, from BOSE ($250 value), a $200 Outlets at Anthem gift card courtesy of Tim’s Toyota in Prescott, and much more. Participating stores will have enter-to-win prizes and in store activities all day long.

Tickets to the Shopping Extravaganza are $20 each. Tickets can be purchased three ways: directly through partnering charities, online at, or at the customer service desk located in the food pavilion.
