The winner of the 2014 Shining Star Award received not one, but two nominations—illustrating Lansdowne Centre’s willingness to go above and beyond when it comes to community service.

Epitomizing what it means to be a caring company, Lansdowne Centre makes it a point to be more than just event sponsors or donors. It’s usually actively involved and invested in the causes it supports. When it comes to the Richmond Christmas Fund, for example, it pulls out all the stops, providing a gift warp booth and even security staff for the Christmas Fund Drive Thru event. The shopping mall even initiated its own raffle fundraiser in support of the cause.

Lansdowne Centre also regularly donates its space as a gathering place for non-profits to give and receive information about community services, and to raise awareness for important community issues. The list of organizations that have benefited from the mall’s generosity includes the BC Cancer Agency, Richmond Chinese Community Society, and Richmond Food Bank.

In accepting the award on behalf of Lansdowne Centre, marketing manager Bronwyn Bailey said: “We’re very proud to be part of the Richmond community.”
