For the fifth year in a row, Palm Beach Outlets and the South Florida Fair are partnering to collect food for the Palm Beach County Food Bank.
On Saturday, Jan. 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Palm Beach Outlets, 1751 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard, West Palm Beach, anyone who donates at least two new, non-perishable items (unopened and not expired) will receive one ticket to the South Florida Fair that is good for one free admission on any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday during the 2019 fair, which runs from Jan. 18 – Feb. 3 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach. The ticket limit is two per person (tickets not given to those 5 and younger because they get free fair admission). This year’s fair theme is “Not All Superheroes Wear Capes.”
In 2018, they collected almost 6,000 pounds, which provides about 6,940 meals, and gave away some 3,000 admission tickets.
