Cranbrook, B.C. – The Kootenay ICE Hockey Club has announced a 50/50 partnership with the Rotary Club of Cranbrook.
The comprehensive partnership will also include a shared investment in a new electronic 50/50 platform at all ICE home games. More flexible payment options and kiosks will be installed complete with running total during games. In addition to the technology investment, the Rotary Club will provide volunteers at each home game.
“The Rotary Club has made a commitment to an inclusive model for re-distribution of funds in the community,” said Matt Cockell, President and General Manager. “We look forward to assisting with the execution and increasing the funds available for the community through the generous support of our fans.”
The ICE would like to acknowledge the support and community focus of Cranbrook Minor Hockey who has run the 50/50 in past years. The partnership with the Rotary Club will enable continued support to organizations like Cranbrook Minor Hockey and others in the East Kootenay region.
“The Rotary Club was excited to partner with the ICE and our members work hard to support community initiatives,” explained Alan Duffy, who is with the Rotary Club. “Engaging grass root organizations through the net proceeds of the 50/50 will allow rotarians to continue to give back, we are excited to get started.”
