Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s smash-hit #LMCFashBash to Return to The Gardens Mall

At Loggerhead Marinelife Center, ocean conservation never goes out of style! That’s why on August 25 from 6 to 8 p.m., the Grand Court at The Gardens Mall will become an extravagant world of couture, compassion and personal style at #LMCFashBash. This glamorous annual event – powered by fashion, champagne and Instagram – pays tribute to South Florida’s favorite flippered friend, the sea turtle.

Hosted by Loggerhead Marinelife Center and The Gardens Mall, the two-hour social highlight will feature local Palm Beach County personalities modeling the season’s latest designs by Lilly Pulitzer, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Bahama and more. All proceeds will benefit Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

“Saving sea turtles is always in season,” said Jack Lighton, president & CEO of Loggerhead Marinelife Center. “We’re thrilled to partner again with The Gardens Mall, Palm Beach Illustrated and PNC Bank. When you combine iconic Palm Beach fashion, champagne, notable fashionistas and an amazing cause, you have one of the best pairings in Palm Beach!”

The evening’s co-hosts and emcees will be Jay Cashmere and Emily Pantelides.
