Lifetime will be giving the gift of 500 photo packages at each property to provide a total of 12,500 families photos that will be remembered for a lifetime.

“Lifetime is synonymous with Christmas and the holidays,” said Meghan Hooper, Lifetime’s Senior Vice President, Original Movies, Co-Productions and Acquisitions. “We are excited to help families create new memories during the Say Santa!” With It’s A Wonderful Lifetime event in Brookfield Properties shopping centers across the country, while spreading yuletide cheer at home with our largest selection of original holiday-themed movies ever.” 

“The brick and mortar retail experience is such an important component of the holiday shopping season, and it is always an exciting time of year for us,” said Melinda Holland, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Brookfield Properties. “Our shopping centers are community destinations designed for families to come together. We love playing a significant role in peoples’ holiday shopping tradition and this is why our collaboration with Lifetime is such a natural fit.”
