Holiday Event At Courtyard Shops

The Courtyard Shops at Wellington invites the community to celebrate the holiday season at the shopping center’s “Snow, Shred & Salute Saturday” family shop-and-dine event on Saturday, Dec. 7 from noon to 4 p.m.

The day will benefit area nonprofits and schools while providing a special opportunity for families to tape “Wishes from Wellington” holiday video greetings produced and donated by Michael Miller of Sell-Ware for loved ones to send to active-duty troops stationed away from home.

An open-to-the-public program of fun for all generations awaits event-goers, as the Courtyard Shops becomes a family-packed afternoon winter wonderland destination. There will be both a snow-filled play area and a spirited holiday-themed photo stop, with free admission with a canned good or unwrapped, new toy.

In addition to holiday sidewalk chalk art along designated walkways of the center, games and prizes, “chances to win” and merchant holiday specials, sales and discounts, a special “salute video spot” will also be set up on-site where families of those serving in active military service can tape a holiday greeting video. To assure a time slot, military families are asked to reserve a session in advance by contacting Kaye Communications at (561) 756-3099 or

The popular Courtyard Shops “Shred-4-Ed” program also returns to give area residents and businesses yet one more year-end opportunity to “turn their trash into cash” to benefit local schools of their choice.

“With tons of snow, family fun, memory-making, shopping, dining, charitable giving and salutes to our troops, the Courtyard Shops at Wellington merrily rolls out the holiday welcome mat,” Property Manager Jeff Purisch said.

Conveniently located at 13860 Wellington Trace, at the corner of Greenview Shores Blvd., the Courtyard Shops is a retail destination with more than 30 shops and restaurants. For more information, visit or call (561) 347-6521.
