Canadian singers Danny Fernandes and Keshia Chanté will be performing live at the grand reopening of Bramalea City Centre in Brampton on April. 20. About 4,000 people are expected to attend the event, also featuring television host Ben Mulroney.
“It’s going to be a very high energy night,” Donna Rosati, marketing director for BCC, told the Brampton Guardian. “This mall has come a long way and this event is going to celebrate that.”
Located at the corner of Queen Street and Dixie Road, the mall has seen over $100 million spent in revitalizing and expanding the shopping centre by 400,000 square-feet. As a result, 100 new stores have been added.
The celebration will also attempt to raise money in support of the William Osler Health System Foundation. BCC will be selling 500 “goodie” bags filled with $200 worth of gift certificates and products for just $50. The foundation is hoping to raise $25,000.
Fans of Fernandes and Chanté will have a chance to meet the singers in an autograph and photo-op session from 6 -7 p.m. and after their performances at 8:15 p.m. A total of 200 wristbands will be given out to meet the artists through BCC and various media outlets. Fans lined up Thursday at BCC for a 100-wristband giveaway that finished in 10 minutes.
BCC first opened in the 1970s and is the second largest mall in the GTA, second to Square One in Mississauga.
