From the beginning of the Home Ice Campaign, Huskie hockey alumni knew they needed to be involved and give to this inspiring project.
The group set a lofty goal and by late March of this year had achieved tremendous results from alumni at home and across Canada.
Huskie Hockey alumni present U of S president, Peter Stoicheff, with a ceremonial cheque representing their cumulative giving from hockey alumni across Canada and the USA. Huskie hockey alumni have been fundraising for this project for more than a year.
We celebrate Huskie hockey alumni's cumulative giving of $2.5 million, which will help fund Merlis Belsher Place – a modern, twin-pad ice facility at the U of S that's greatly needed for university and minor hockey.
"As a group, we felt it was important to support this significant project," said Tim Hodgson, chair of the Home Ice Campaign and Huskie hockey alumnus. "This total represents more than a year of hard work for Huskie Hockey alumni across Canada and the United States and we are thrilled it will support such an amazing project."
