Honoring women who are business owners and leaders in the community

Anderson, SC (March 8, 2021) – Anderson Mall will celebrate Women’s History Month and introduce exciting spring events for children and adults. The month of March commemorates and recognizes the vital role all women play in American society and history. Anderson Mall is thrilled to partner with two of its very own small business owners and women who are leaders in the community, Kim Sams and Linda Faye Pickens. Anderson Mall is also pleased to welcome the new leading artist of the Canvas Project, Shea Abramo Money.

Does your child have a musical, art, dance, or drama talent they would like to show off? Lyndon’s Academy of the Arts and M.A.D.D. Talent’s Inc., in partnership with Anderson Mall is hosting Anderson’s Got Talent “M.A.D.D. Talent” on March 13, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Center Court. The showcase will recognize the talented youth in the Anderson area and highlight talents in music, art, dance, and drama. There will be several youth vendors and organizations, live performances, and much more. “It is very important that we encourage all youth in the community to follow their dreams and turn it into reality with hard work, dedication, and most importantly, have fun”, said Linda.

In addition to celebrating Women’s History Month, Women’s Empowerment Incorporated will hold its 12th annual Women’s Empowerment Conference on March 30, at 9 a.m. The live virtual event will include Dr. Kimberly Moore, Min. Kathy Borders, and Dr. Chaka Smith.

Very similar to an expo, the event will start at the Center Court and work its way down to the Food Court. “Being surrounded by women who are supporting one another and learning from each other, is how women empower other women” said Kim. 

Anderson Mall appreciates and honors all women, everywhere. As the mall recognizes and celebrates women, they will also continue to electrify the Anderson community through their Canvas Project. With much success, Anderson Mall has brought the community together through wall murals and parking space designs. Shea will be leading the second phase of the project, for the parking spaces with sponsors. To add to the celebration, Shea will be working with United Way of Anderson County, Habitat of Anderson County, and the Art Center, Monday, March 8. As a talented and driven local artist in the community, Shea has an extensive and evolving career with an established record of original and creative artwork.

“We are passionate about serving as a safe gathering space for our community, and are proud to be a place where families, friends, and visitors can come together to be a positive force in a thriving community” said General Manager, Chunsta Miller.
