Do you know how much a tiger weighs?

Well, if you take part in Lansdowne Centre’s Year of the Tiger contest, you will be asked to guess the weight of their very own “tiger.”

It won’t be real, of course; it will be made of cloth, measure about four-feet long and be stuffed with packaged food.

Starting Saturday, Jan. 15 – as part of the shopping centre’s Lunar New Year celebrations – you can enter by making a suggested cash donation of $5 to the Richmond Food Bank.

Once you’ve done that, you will receive a contest card where you can make your best guess for a chance to win $388 in gift cards.

Lansdowne Centre is also promising to match the donations made, up to $5,000. The contest closes on Feb. 15.

Participants will also receive a “wishing card” that you can write or draw your wishes on, which will then be hung on a display frame behind the tiger.

The packaged food inside the Lansdowne tiger is being donated by Lansdowne T&T Supermarket, with the items inside also heading to the food bank afterwards.
