Once a week for five weeks beginning today (Monday, May 3), DLBA will be hosting a social media contest on both Facebook (Discover Downtown Langley | Facebook) and Instagram (@discoverdowntownlangley).

Each week one lucky person will win 21 gift certificates to different restaurants, each valued at $20 for a prize package of $420.

“We reached out to our local restaurants and offered to purchase five x $20 gift certificates from them, no strings attached”, James said.

“There are no expiry dates on the certificates, and the only thing we ask is that the winners either use every gift certificate or regift the ones they won’t use to someone who will, because the restaurants truly need our support right now.”
