On Satur­day, Aug. 26, East­point Mall will be host­ing a Back to School event to ben­e­fit the com­mu­nity.

“We have been around for over sixty years, and we’re re­ally look­ing to thrive and host th­ese kinds of events,” said Brett Foel­ber, East­point Mall’s spokesman.

The mall will be host­ing a Back to School Event and Fash­ion Show on Satur­day Aug. 26, from 1 to 4 p.m.

The event will in­clude face paint­ing, giveaways and a pre­miere chil­dren’s fash­ion show hosted by Bur­ley En­ter­tain­ment’s Queens of Glam. More than 50 pro­fes­sional mod­els rang­ing in age from eight to 18 will star in the chore­ographed Back to School show.

The mall, work­ing with Bal­ti­more County Public Schools as well as coun­selor rep­re­sen­ta­tives from 10 area schools, will be dis­tribut­ing 350 back­packs filled with school sup­plies to par­ents that pre-reg­is­tered.

Although all of the bags that were avail­able have been spo­ken for at time of press, mon­i­tor the East­point Mall’s Face­book page for up­dates on the sit­u­a­tion.

“First, this is a com­mu­nity ini­tia­tive for those thou­sands of stu­dents in the city and county who are go­ing back to school,” Foel­ber said. “Sec­ond, it’s get­ting peo­ple to come to the mall.”
