The Shops on El Paseo to Draw Thousands in Support of Local Breast Cancer Survivors
“A Miracle on El Paseo” will celebrate its 11th Anniversary on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 5 to 9 p.m., thanks to The Shops on El Paseo, the desert’s premier luxury collection of retailers and restaurants who generously sponsors the annual event benefiting BIGHORN Behind A Miracle (BAM).
The popular holiday themed, charitable event stretches across two-blocks of the famous El Paseo shopping district and includes luxury boutiques such as Gucci, St. John, Bottega Veneta, Ralph Lauren, and Burberry. These world-renowned designer boutiques and area restaurants celebrate the holiday spirit by donating a percentage of the evening’s sales to BAM.
The Shops on El Paseo Owner Fred Fern, Palm Desert Mayor Sabby Jonathan, BIGHORN BAM Chair Debi Aarthun, NBC Palm Springs’s Gino LaMont, and singer Martha Davis will do the honors of officially lighting the 60 foot El Paseo Christmas Tree. Kris Kringle appears early to the delight of visitors and residents, offering snapshots for holiday cards.
New this year is the ultimate holiday-inspired Instagram interactive display featuring a larger-than-life walk-thru snow globe installation. Additional outdoor activities on this magical evening gourmet food tastings and refreshments from 20 of the Valley’s top restaurants, a 5-story Ferris Wheel, and do it yourself ornament decorating. Musical entertainment on the City of Palm Desert concert stage will feature Citrus College’s pop rock ensamble Night Shift and Corylive! Headlining the evening is Martha Davis & The Motels.
BIGHORN BAM was established by local resident Selby Dunham who was diagnosed with breast cancer over 13 years ago. BAM is dedicated to providing critical funding needed to help in the diagnosis, treatment, research, services and education for those affected by breast cancer.
