Ponderay Community Ice Rink

Donation protected
We at North Idaho Ice and the City of Ponderay would like to extend a huge thank you to all those that made our fundraiser a success. This first event went extremely well and just over $30K was donated that will go straight toward getting our community on the ice! None of this would be possible without your support.

We’d also like to acknowledge the over 400 people who wanted to attend but were unable to because it sold out. This has been a learning experience for all of us and the support for this event was overwhelming. For those of you that didn't get to attend, stay tuned, additional events are on the way!
