Jalapeño and Jan's PV Shopping Spree
email this pageprint this pageemail usPatrick Harrison - PVNN

Me and Tropicasa Realty President Wayne Franklin giving Jan her $1000 USD pre-paid gift card from LANS.

Jan used some of her winnings to buy me a new pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses that I've had my eye on.
At a recent press conference, Tropicasa Realty's newly named mascot, Jalepeño, had this to say:

I have a new best friend, Jan Helgeson of Billings, Montana. You know, she's the one that won Tropicasa Realty's "Name Our Mascot" Contest and gave me my great name - Jalapeño.

Well, Jan recently received her $1000 USD shopping spree at LANS. She even took me along and bought me a new pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses that I have had my eyes on.

Take a look at these great shots of me and Tropicasa Realty President Wayne Franklin giving Jan her $1000 USD pre-paid gift card from LANS; and the other one of Jan buying me the new shades.

Now that I have a name, I can go spread the word that Tropicasa Realty's tag line "Your Security Through Our Experience" is more than just a phrase: it represents who they truly are. Get ready Banderas Bay - you'll be seeing a lot more of Jalapeño!

A big "thank you" to Tropicasa Realty, LANS Department Store and everyone that participated in this great promotion.
