Sky Fan Wins Trip to Panama

In one of the biggest contests the Chicago Sky has ever held in-arena, Hector Lopez of Chicago was the lucky winner of two airline tickets from Chicago to Panama and three nights stay at the Double Tree by Hilton in Panama City by making a paper airplane that could go the distance.

As part of a season-long in-arena sweepstakes sponsored by Copa Airlines, fans were chosen randomly from entries collected at each home game over the course of the 2012 season. The lucky contestants were provided tools at the September 22 game at Allstate Arena to design paper airplanes which they used to compete in the Copa Airplane Throw. Lopez won the contest by throwing his plane the farthest.

Sky President and CEO, Adam Fox was pleased with the event. “We were thrilled to work with Copa Airlines to provide one of our fans the trip of a lifetime to Panama,” he said. We look forward to continue collaborating with our partners to provide the best possible experiences for the Sky faithful.”

Copa Airlines’ Commercial Regional Manager - North America, Fernando Fondevila, also commented: “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. 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.”
