Concord Mills hosts "Giving Tuesday" November 27

Giving Tuesday is a chartable event to benefit Samaritan's Feed, a humanitarian aid organization that helps impoverished children from around the world with new shoes. On Tuesday, November 27 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Panther's wide receiver Steve Smith will take part in a knockout tournament in the Concord Mills' Food Court. In honor of this cause participants will play in their socks during an evening of fun and games. Attendees will also enjoy music entertainment and the chance to win special prizes. To compete in the tournament, participants must donate a new pair of new tennis shoes or pay a $10 fee. Shoppers who cannot participate but would like to make a contribution can text "SHOES" to 85944.
