$300K in donations for Iceplex project

Posted: Updated:

     In hockey it's called the hat trick.

     But this version features three donations that will help raise the money needed to open Sioux Falls' future Iceplex.

     Today the Ice Sports Association announced a $100,000 donation from Sioux Falls LLC, the owner of the Stampede hockey team.

     Stage two is a campaign by local businesses to raise another $100,000 dollars.

     And another $100,000 will come from the stampede. Joe Zueger is president of the Ice Sports Association. "We're just thrilled to have them on board with what we're doing and working together to ultimately create a new home for the boys and girls of Sioux Falls and youth and families in the area."

     Groundbreaking on the Scheels Iceplex is scheduled for late this year.

     Opening could take place by fall of 2014.
