Ice Arena Fundraising Tops Expectations

Posted: Updated:

A well-known Columbus sports venue has exceeded its fundraising goal. Our partners at The Republic report a campaign to pay for interior renovations at Hamilton Center Ice Arena took in $400,000 more than targeted. Organizers were hoping to drum up $1 million.

Plans call for updates to the main entrance, locker rooms and ice rink, as well as turning the lobby into a community room.

Columbus Parks and Recreation Department Director Mark Jones says the effort aims to return the venue to its previous purpose as a community center and meeting place.
