Ever feel kind of selfish when you’re shopping?

If so, you can shop without that nagging guilt at the Citadel Outlets’ ninth Shopping Extravaganza on Oct. 18, which annually nets more than $100,000 to support 38 local charities.

Here’s how it works: for admission to the extravaganza, shoppers pay $25 -- $20 of which goes to charity. In exchange, shoppers can partake of exclusive discounts from more than 100 stores, a catered lunch from Ruby’s Diner, Stella Rosa wine tasting at San Antonio Winery, live entertainment and the chance to win more than $90,000 in prizes.

Tickets are available on or from Eventbrite.


The event is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the mall, located off I-5 between the Atlantic and Washington exits at 100 Citadel Drive, Los Angeles.
