Military Appreciation Weekend at Manhattan Town Center
Military Appreciation Weekend, formerly known as Operation Yellow Ribbon, will continue to utilize wristbands for the event. Military members and their family can check in at the Navy Federal Credit Union registration booth near Center Court in front of Bath & Body Works. They are asked simply to show their military identification, will then receive a wristband, and can register to win multiple prizes highlighted by a $500 mall shopping spree.
See this flyer for a list of participating restaurants and retailers!
