The Gate Mall has announced it is participating in Breast Cancer Awareness month through an activity incorporating its iconic tree sculptures. Guests and pass buyers are welcome to donate the amount of their choice to the cause by putting the money in the provided box, and choose a card hung on the tree as a memoir containing a message of hope. The activity will remain running throughout the month of October and is open for the public during the operating hours of The Gate Mall. The money collected through donations will be given to Qatar Cancer Society to help patients fighting the disease.

We wanted to send out the message of hope in a different, creative way and the donations will increase the chances of patients to get the treatment they need. We would like to thank our guests for helping The Gate Mall reach its goal in raising awareness and helping others.”

The Gate’s iconic tree sculptures, located on the ground floor at three locations, have increasingly become a symbol of not only modern art, but also a representation of how art can give back to the community.
