The Kootenay ICE Hockey Club has announced its game on Wednesday, February 14 against the Saskatoon Blades is being called the ICE Education Fund Game and Teacher Appreciation.
The event is to create awareness and raise money for the ICE Education Fund, while also saying thank you to the tremendous teachers in the community.
To help raise money for the ICE Education Fund, 50 percent of the net retail sales, 15 percent of the dollars from walk-up ticket sales and 100 percent of the net sales from the Memorial Cup coins during Wednesday’s game will go towards the fund. In addition, two team signed jerseys will be auctioned off with 100 percent of the net proceeds going towards the fund.
The ICE Education Fund proudly supports the post-secondary education of current and former players. Since 2008, the ICE Education Fund has supported 72 players that have attended post-secondary schools.
The ICE Education Fund is 100 percent funded by the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club and the generous donations of fans, corporate sponsors and businesses.
In addition, a number of teachers from Mount Baker High School will be in attendance for our Teacher Appreciation. These teachers play a pivotal role in the development of ICE players and many other kids in the Cranbrook area.
