Guest Services Grand Opening draws a spectacular crowd

Capilano Mall awards winner with $5,000

NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. – Paper airplanes floated down the corridor of Capilano Mall just before $5,000 in gift cards was awarded to one lucky winner at the Grand Opening Celebration of its Guest Services Desk on Saturday, October 22, 2016. Over 500 guests enjoyed a day of family-friendly activities, live music, appetizers, refreshments, free giveaways, and of course, a paper airplane throwing contest where the winner was crowned.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the opening of our Guest Services desk and all of the convenient amenities that it offers than a day of fun activities for the whole family to partake in,” said Shera Allibhai, Property Manager at Capilano Mall. “Not only did the community get to experience the first class service that we offer, but we were also able to award a very deserving contestant in our paper airplane throwing contest with $5,000 in gift cards.”

In celebration of its new gift card program, Capilano Mall encouraged its shoppers to enter their contest during September and October for a chance to win $5,000 in Capilano Mall gift cards. From over 1500 entries, 20 semi-finalists were randomly chosen to return back to Capilano Mall to compete in a paper airplane throwing contest to compete for the grand prize.

The winner, Lesley, threw her paper airplane an impressive 30 feet down the mall’s corridor. A foster mom from North Vancouver, Lesley was surprised and delighted that she won the competition. Her strategy was to fold the paper airplane as close to a dart-like shape as possible so that it would easily glide down the hallway.

Capilano Mall wants to congratulate all of the contenders, as well as the spectators who attended the day of music, food, giveaways and fun.
