The Recreation Committee formed the Arena Fundraising Task Force to assist in raising dollars for the Gale Centre, which opened in June of 2010.
Members of this Task Force included:
- Recreation Committee Members
- Community Volunteers
- Representatives from the arena ice user groups
Part of the fundraising campaign that was established was the Great Seat Sale. Every seat in the E.S. Fox pad can be purchased and have a nameplate added in honour or in memory of a loved one, friend or business.
A unique feature of the Great Seat Sale is the 433 pink seats that were installed in the E.S. Fox Pad. The pink used for the seats is the same pink that promotes breast cancer awareness. Each pink seat can be purchased for $250 with $50 from each seat going to the Greater Niagara General Hospital for cancer related care. Complete the Seat Sale form and submit it, with payment, to the Recreation and Culture office listed on the form.
All seat donations are tax deductible.
