Rolly Artillaga is all smiles, and rightfully so. Artillaga was the lucky winner in a grand-prize draw for a $5,000 vacation Saturday, the final day of Station Mall’s 50th Anniversary Celebrations.

Does the family have a destination in mind?

“Hopefully, everything will go well in Israel, because we were there for 14 years and we want to go back and see,” said Lopez.

“Our previous employers there, they were very nice to us, treated us like family, and we’d like to go back and visit them,” said Artillaga. 

Beltran says he’s extremely pleased with the city’s response to the Mall’s golden anniversary.

“I’m grateful that Station Mall has such an amazing team., said Beltran. “Security, guest services, maintenance…they all did a great job. We couldn’t have pulled this off without them. All of the events were amazing. We had a great response from the public. People were coming here to have fun, a good time. Couldn’t ask for anything more.”
