Save our Seats – A Bleacher Project Fundraiser
When our new ice arena was built, the budget was tight, and to finish the building, a few items that were deemed non-essential were cut, including bleachers. As a result, the “seats” at Sun Prairie Ice Arena are concrete. The time has come to put this finishing touch on the arena. The bleachers cost $25,500, assuming volunteer installation. Our goal is to raise the funds in February so that materials can be ordered and the new bleachers installed during spring and early summer.
Sun Prairie Youth Hockey has agreed to coordinate this fundraising initiative, committing to match up to $6,500 of funds raised by others who call Sun Prairie Ice Arena home. They are requesting support from the booster clubs for the boys and girls high school hockey team, OBHL members, and Skating Academy/free-style participants. All donors (businesses, families, or individuals) of $100 or more will be recognized on a donor plaque. To help each group raise a share of the money needed, Sun Prairie Youth Hockey has arranged for a special Bleacher Project discount card that provides discounts at area businesses in exchange for a $20 (or more) contribution to the bleacher fundraiser. These cards will be distributed to coordinators within each group within the next week, with each group asked to sell a specific number of cards. Additional details will be shared with each coordinator.
Thank you for your support of this important project.

The fundraising cards include a blend of one-item use keytabs (e.g., buy one, get one free 90 minute jump at Rockin' Jump, 2 for 1 greens fees at The Oaks, buy one, get one free Madison Capitols tickets, plus pizza deals at both Rocky Rococo's ad Pizza Hut) as well as year-long discounts at Arby's, Market Street Diner, Willie Ty's, and Culver's (all 10% off), discounts at Kwik Trip, Pizza Pit, Prairie Lanes, Glass Nickel Pizza, Papa Murphy's, Super Lube, and Suter's Gold Medal Sports, and even free pickle appetizers at Texas Road House. It is easy to make back the $20 purchase price with just two or three uses.
If 1,000 or more cards are sold, the card distributor has agreed to donate an extra 10% of the proceeds back to our project.
