The Yankton Area Ice Association is in the middle of their “We Need a Miracle Fundraiser”. They are trying to raise $350,000 to replace their aging compressor and Zamboni and to date have secured roughly $135,000 of that goal. According to the association, the compressor is roughly 40 years old and has been patched, repaired and band-aided to the point where it’s going to cost more to keep it running than to replace. The Zamboni is a 1995 model and is beginning to fail regularly. Fundraising Chair Tina Sasse says an encouraging gift has come their way.
Major gifts so far have come from the Yankton Medical Clinic and the 100 Women of Yankton. Donors wishing to take advantage of the recent challenge can find a number of ways to donate by going to Yankton Area Ice Association (yanktonice.org)
