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.”

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.
