GREENVILLE, SC | October 3, 2017 – On Saturday, Magnolia Park Shopping Center held its first annual Team Spirit Celebration to raise funds for hurricane relief efforts following devastation caused by hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Situated off of I-385 and I-85 on Woodruff Road, Magnolia Park is the area’s premier destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in Greenville.
This free event featured live music by The Sound Committee, lawn games, face painting and giveaways for guests. Families and tenants dressed in game day gear, sporting their team’s colors, as they enjoyed tailgate festivities. Restaurants located in the shopping center provided game day deals to welcome fans in for the broadcasting of both the Clemson and South Carolina football games.
