The Benton H. Wilcoxon Municipal Ice Complex receives donation from Olympia Construction in support of the Capitol Improvement Campaign.
Huntsville, AL– The Benton H. Wilcoxon Municipal Ice Complex and the 501 (c)(3) organization Friends of Recreational Ice Activities would like to thank Mr. Jeff Beaver and Mr. Ralph Fullerton, owners of Olympia Construction, for their generous donation of $10,000.00.
This donation will have a tremendous impact on FRIA’s continued efforts to raise $400,000.00 for the upcoming expansion of the Benton H. Wilcoxon Municipal Ice Complex. The Ice Complex hopes to break ground on the expansion in 2017 and continued successful fundraising will make this possible. The expansion will include new locker rooms, restrooms, and multi-purpose rooms on the east side of the facility. When the expansion is completed the facility will be able to support larger tournaments and events, bringing more exposure to our athletes and increasing the economic impact on the City of Huntsville.
The Ice Complex currently supports the North Alabama Hockey Associations youth and adult hockey leagues, Total Package Hockey, and the Huntsville Skating School and Training Academy. The Ice Complex has been serving the community since 1991 and is open daily for public skate, birthday parties, corporate events, and more. The Ice Complex also hosts the regional Special Olympics competition every year and actively works to ensure everyone in the community can stop by and enjoy a few hours of fun on the ice.
Olympia Construction, located in Albertville, AL, has served the southeast since 1989. The owners and key personnel have a total combined experience of more than 160 years in construction, development, management, and design of apartment complexes, town-homes and single family sub-divisions. The Company currently holds a General Contractor’s License in the States of Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia, South Carolina and Louisiana.
