The Benton H. Wilcoxon Municipal Ice Complex and the 501 (c)(3) organization Friends of Recreational Ice Activities would like to thank Senator Arthur Orr, (R- Madison, Morgan, and Limestone Counties) for his generous donation of $500.00.
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.
