Mall Raffles Corvette

August 18, 1991

The Mall in Columbia will be celebrating its 20th birthday Tuesday, raffling off a $65,000 Corvette and giving out 2,000 cupcakes with birthday candles.

On Tuesday, mall merchants also will announce the results of its "20 Great Years/200 Grand" fund-raising campaign for the Columbia Foundation, aimed at giving $200,000 back to the community in gratitude for 20 years of patronage by Columbia residents.

The effort, which includes merchants Rouse Co.-managed village centers and Dobbin Center, already has brought in $175,000, said Danielle Morgenthaler, marketing director for the mall.

Although the birthday is being observed Tuesday, the mall opened Aug. 2, 1971, as thehub of the Rouse Co.'s new planned community.
