Westchester’s Ridge Hill Announces LEGOLAND®
Discovery Center Ticket Winners

Raffle for “Back To School” Promotion Kicks Off Fun-Filled
September — With Long Awaited Opening of Banana Republic and
Creation of an Original Mural

Yonkers, NY—Thursday, September 4, 2014—Forest City Ratner Companies, owner and developer of Westchester’s Ridge Hill, announced today the ten winners of the raffle conducted throughout the August “Back to School” promotions. Visitors to Ridge Hill during the last two weeks of the month were eligible to enter the drawing. The winners were announced as part of an outline of upcoming September events.

Each raffle winner received 4 tickets to LEGOLAND® Discovery Center, the nationally renowned family attraction which is one of the center’s premier entertainment destinations. The ten winners were from throughout the region spanning from Riverdale to Yonkers to Scarsdale and Larchmont.

“As families prepared for the annual ritual of going back to school, Ridge Hill offered a wide variety of specials – including for local teachers – that truly brought the community together,” said Kathryn Welch, Executive Vice President of Retail Development for Forest City Ratner Companies. “Our contest for the give-away of LEGOLAND® Discovery Center tickets was one of the highlights of our activities.”

In addition to announcing the LEGOLAND® ticket winners, Ms. Welch discussed exciting news about upcoming events at Ridge Hill:

  • The announcement of Banana Republic joining the long list of fashion retailers came several months ago, but the store is set to open its doors on September 10. Banana Republic joins stores like H & M, Uniqlo, Brooks Brothers Flatiron Shop, White House | Black Market, The Limited, Express, and Lord & Taylor to serve the fashion conscious shoppers looking for new school and holiday outfits.

  • Beyond retail expansion, Ridge Hill is in the process of having a new art installation created. Kindo Harper, a muralist from New York City, has begun work on his latest creation. His new piece will be along the walkway between Fountain Plaza and the parking lot behind REI and Dick’s Sporting Goods. Completion is expected in October.

  • Ridge Hill’s latest upcoming contest will tap into the prevalent use of “selfies” on Instagram. It’s as simple as taking a Selfie at Ridge Hill with an identifying landmark in the background and use #RidgeHillSelfie. First Prize will be a $250 Ridge Hill gift card with additional prizes available. Details can be found on the Ridge Hill website www.WestchestersRidgeHill.com.

“We think of Ridge Hill as a place for families to come for more than just shopping,” continued Ms. Welch, “so we’re continually looking for new and exciting ways to provide different options for our visitors.”
