Chicago Sky Fan Wins Trip to Panama
CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2012 - The Chicago Sky and Copa Airlines announced today that Hector Lopez of Chicago has won two airline tickets from Chicago to Panama and three nights stay at the Double Tree by Hilton in Panama City as part of a season-long in-arena sweepstakes. The promotion culminated in a paper airplane-throwing contest at Allstate Arena when the Chicago Sky played the Washington Mystics in their final game on Sept. 22.
"We were thrilled to work with Copa Airlines to provide one of our fans the trip of a lifetime to Panama," said Adam Fox, Chicago Sky president and CEO. "We look forward to continue collaborating with our partners to provide the best possible experiences for the Sky faithful."
The contestants, who were chosen randomly from entries collected at each home game over the course of the 2012 season, were provided tools prior to the game to design paper airplanes which they used to compete in the Copa Airplane Throw. Lopez won the contest by throwing his plane the farthest.
"Copa Airlines is pleased to partner with The Chicago Sky to give a fan an opportunity to travel to Panama -- number one on the New York Times list of places to visit in 2012," said Fernando Fondevila, Commercial Regional Manager - North America, Copa Airlines. "We hope he will enjoy our world-class service aboard our modern Boeing Next-Generation 737-700 aircraft with complimentary meals and beverages, including wines and spirits; a 12-channel entertainment system with new movies and complimentary headsets; and bilingual flight attendants."
