The Prince George Cougars 50/50 Society recently presented the Northern B.C. Centre for Skating with a $4,000 donation.
For several seasons, the Northern B.C. Centre for Skating has been a valued partner of the Cougars and have a very important role on game nights, “They are extremely professional from their coaches to their young skaters,” said Cougars’ Director of Business & Game Operations Iain Scott. “They’re an integral part of our game operations.”
At every Cougars game the Northern B.C. Centre for Skating is front and centre, volunteering five skaters who make up the Cougars’ “Ice Crew.” The Ice Crew has several responsibilities, including their primary task of cleaning the ice during media time outs in each of the three periods. They also assist in intermission contests and put on several intermission performances throughout the season.
The $4,000 donation will help the Northern B.C. Centre for Skating with general operating costs. Local businesses interesting in sponsoring the Cougars’ Ice Crew for next season can email Iain.Scott@pgcougars.com, or phone 250-596-9966.
