Save Our Seats - Bleacher Fundraiser

By rsmith, 03/03/17, 6:45PM CST


The time has come to put this finishing touch on the arena!

When our new ice arena was built, the budget was tight, and to finish the building, a few items that were deemed non-essential were cut, including bleachers. As a result, the “seats” at Sun Prairie Ice Arena are concrete. The time has come to put this finishing touch on the arena. The bleachers cost $25,500, assuming volunteer installation. Our goal is to raise the funds in February and March so that materials can be ordered and the new bleachers installed during spring and early summer.

Sun Prairie Youth Hockey Association (SPYHA) has agreed to coordinate this fundraising initiative, committing to match up to $6,500 of funds raised by others who call Sun Prairie Ice Arena home.  They are requesting support from the booster clubs for the boys and girls high school hockey team, OBHL members, and Skating Academy/free-style participants. All donors (businesses, families, or individuals) of $100 or more will be recognized on a donor plaque. To help each group raise a share of the money needed, SPYHA has arranged for a special Bleacher Project discount card that provides discounts at area businesses in exchange for a $20 (or more) contribution to the bleacher fundraiser. These cards will be distributed to coordinators within each group within the next week, with each group asked to sell a specific number of cards. Additional details will be shared with each coordinator.

Thank you for your support of this important project.
