AHA MEDIA attended an exclusive meet-and-greet with Vancouver Canucks legend Trevor Linden, to coincide with the launch of the LG Concierge Advantage, a new digital signage program specially design for the Canadian retailers at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Vancouver

“The LG Concierge Advantage combines not only LG’s cutting-edge display technology but customized solutions for leasing, servicing and financing—a true team effort. We’d love to give you a sneak peek at some of this technology and then get an autograph and have your picture taken with Trevor, who is on-hand to help celebrate the team approach that LG Concierge Advantage embodies. The BC Hospitality Expo trade show opens at noon on the day of this event so our meet-and-greet with Trevor will be the perfect lead-in to your 2009 Expo experience.”

AHA MEDIA is very excited to attend an exclusive meet and greet with Vancouver Canucks Legend Trevor Linden with the launch of LG Concierge Advantage!

Trevor Linden

Trevor Linden’s career as an NHL hockey player and humanitarian has been remarkable. Trevor frequently visits B.C.’s Children’s Hospital and is a supporter and spokesperson for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Cancer Society Lottery of Hope, and Canuck Place, a hospice for terminally ill children. Linden has started a program for underprivileged children called Trevor’s Captain’s Crew, which brings children by limousine to a free hockey game complete with a luxury suite at GM Place. In 1997, he was awarded the King Clancy Trophy for his leadership role and off-ice humanitarian contributions, and the Gillette World Champion Award as the Canadian athlete who best exemplifies excellence in sports and compassion and humanitarianism off the ice.

LG Electronics would like to invite you to attend an exclusive meet-and-greet with Vancouver Canucks legend Trevor Linden, to coincide with the launch of the LG Concierge Advantage, a new digital signage program specially design for the Canadian retailers.

Just as a bit of background on the event itself…

AHA MEDIA  is delighted to be invited by LG Canada to have a sneak peek at some of the newest LG phones! AHA MEDIA has always had a great interest in mobile technology and how it can help make lives better!

AHA MEDIA will be participating in the LG Mobile Phone Roundtable &  $5,000 Charity Challenge on Thursday November 26, 2009 and remembers back in April 2009, April Smith and Peter Davies competed in the LG Canadian Texting Championships and Media Charity Challenge! :) http://tinyurl.com/c8kngu

If AHA MEDIA wins the $5,000 Charity Challenge,  we will donate our  cheque to CACV  - Community Arts Council of Vancouver

http://www.cacv.ca

The Community Arts Council of Vancouver was the first arts council in North America.

Since its beginning in 1946, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver has been a contributor to shaping the cultural life of Vancouver. The Council has been a powerful force in creating and advocating for many of the institutions, traditions and policies in Vancouver that we benefit from today.

For more than 60 years, CACV has been contributing to the cultural and community development of Vancouver by creating art projects that engage the community and facilitating, supporting, and advocating for initiatives, facilities, and programs that increase community participation in the arts. Our interests are to increase understanding of how the arts create community, grow our appreciation of our cultural differences, and engage the community in the art of developing community.

In the next few years we will attract and engage community leaders and the people who have the ability to provide the resources and collaborate with them in determining the critical initiatives that will accelerate the cultural and community development of our city.

Our biggest priority and greatest opportunity is our Downtown Eastside community which is rich in history and cultures and the neighbourhood with the largest population of artists per capita in British Columbia.

CHILDREN LIVE DREAM HERE

 
Thursday October 29, 5:30pm-10pm
5:30pm-7pm Art opening
Families welcome


7pm-10pm Join your neighbours to celebrate the Festival
Chapel Arts, 304 Dunlevy

The presence of children in our community is the focus of this show of photo works by students from grades 4 to 7. Photographer and lead artist Anne Marie Slater collaborated with the students on an interpretive walk of Princess Avenue and their photographs reveal the sky, the street, and the industrial side of Hastings Street re-linking the historic north/south connection to the waterfront.

The perspectives of inner city children are captured in photo stories and audio recordings, on view in the main gallery and in projections on the outside of Chapel Arts.

Children Live Dream Here: Urban Landscapes is a community arts initiative with the participation of local organizations, community members and the support of the Festival and the City of Vancouver Great Beginnings program.

Sponsored by Strathcona Elementary School, Strathcona Community Centre Association and Chapel Arts, with funding from Port Metro Vancouver and Telus-Vancouver Community Board. Free

With thanks to Anne Marie Slater and the Heart of the City Festival in Vancouver Downtown Eastside for text and image
