Hussar Ice Society auction huge success

    The Hussar Ice Society held its annual auction on Friday, November 18. The fundraiser collected roughly $57,000. Items were donated by businesses and individuals in Hussar and the surrounding area.
    Proceeds go to the local arena, and the money helps the Ice Society run and maintain the building.
    “It’s a big portion of our operating budget for the year,” said Clay Armstrong from the Ice Society. “We don’t take any money from the municipality.”
    “It’s an annual fundraiser that we do to keep the doors open in our arena,” continued Armstrong. “It’s something we depend on every year.”
    The chrome plated shovel that is auctioned off every year returned again. The shovel adorns the winner’s business for a year and then returns to the auction. Bob Davidson was the winner for the shovel this year.
    Other items included a spot on the hockey jerseys, won by Foresight Vision, and the Hussar Credit Union bought centre ice.
    The auction was a success and attendees were treated to a great roast beef dinner.
    “We’d like to thank the donors and buyers,” said Armstrong. “The community and the kids who skate on the ice greatly appreciate it.”
