Bayshore Shopping Centre campaign to benefit Sens Foundation, improve shopping experience this holiday season
This holiday season, Bayshore Shopping Centre is looking to bring the magic back to Holiday shopping. The shopping centre has joined forces with the Sens Foundation for the Holiday Rejoice campaign to benefit local children and offer patrons a new, easy way to embrace the holiday shopping experience.
The Rejoice campaign includes free valet parking every weekend, free photos with Santa Claus on Mondays, and free gift-wrapping every Tuesday. In lieu of payment for the valet service, shoppers will be encouraged to make a financial contribution to the Sens Foundation.
“We want to make the holiday season a special one for our patrons by raising the bar of customer service and by giving back to our community,” said Denis Pelletier, Bayshore’s General Manager. “In partnering with the Sens Foundation and the quality staff from Scotiabank Place, we hope the campaign will result in an enjoyable and positive shopping experience at Bayshore.”
The Sens Foundation, a strategic partner of the Ottawa Senators Hockey Club, is committed to raising funds that enable positive life changes for children in eastern Ontario and western Quebec in the areas of education, healthcare, sports and recreation. Over the past 20 years, in partnership with the hockey club, alumni, corporate partners and fans, the Sens Foundation has donated nearly $70 million to this region.
“This campaign will help generate awareness about the important work the Sens Foundation is doing in our community and most importantly, it will raise funds for the one in three Canadian families who cannot afford to enroll their children in sport or recreation activities,” said Sens Foundation president Danielle Robinson. “We would like to thank the staff and patrons of Bayshore Shopping Centre for doing their part in making this a reality for some deserving kids this holiday season.”
The valet service is a first-of-its-kind service for a shopping centre in Ottawa. The objective is to alleviate the headaches which are associated with parking during the Holidays. The service will be managed by Ottawa-based Responsible Choice.
The campaign runs until Christmas Eve. Additional details are available at
