The Ontario Mills mall will be giving away a total of $5,000 to local teachers to help them get a stylish start to the school year.

The first 100 teachers to stop by the California Welcome Center (Simon Guest Services, near Tommy Hilfiger) on Thursday, Aug. 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. will receive a $50 American Express Simon Giftcard to shop.

The event will feature complimentary school supplies, refreshments, light bites and goodie bags, including Savings Passports with special offers at participating retailers and restaurants.

All attendees will also have the opportunity to enter a contest for the chance to win a $250 shopping spree.

Summer is almost over, and teachers everywhere are busy preparing for a new school year. Between finalizing lesson plans, buying supplies and setting up the classroom for their students, it’s easy for teachers to forget about their own back-to-school shopping needs. This year, kids won’t be the only ones getting new clothes for school. To help teachers get a fashion-forward start to the new school year and thank them for all their hard work, Ontario Mills will be hosting this exclusive event.

Participants must be currently employed by an educational institution and present their original valid school employee ID at the event.

For full details, guests can call (909) 484-8300, visit Simon Guest Services or find more information at www.simon.com/mall/ontario-mills.
