Thank you for rallying Chestermere! Submissions have now closed and the top four finalists will be announced on March 14.
The Chestermere Regional Community Association (CRCA) with the support of the City of Chestermere, has applied to compete in Kraft Hockeyville 2020. The winners of this nation-wide contest receive $250,000 towards arena upgrades and the opportunity to host an NHL game in their community.
The City of Chestermere thrives on the ice, and the Rec Centre is the heart of our community. Earlier this year, we were all shocked and devastated when the building was nearly closed without warning due to structural issues discovered in our Red Arena roof. Luckily, with some cooperation and planning the closure was avoided, but still left us with a massive fix and a possible looming closure if not repaired. The Kraft Hockeyville contest is an extraordinary chance to win the cost of the repairs, which we otherwise cannot afford as a not-for-profit organization.
The CRCA believes the City of Chestermere is a worthy recipient; we live and breathe hockey and we’re ready to do what it takes to be crowned Kraft Hockeyville. #IAmChestermereHockey
