To thank the community for the runner-up finish in the Kraft Hockeyville contest, Sartell hockey boosters hosted a community thank you July 16 at Bernick’s Arena.

The event featured free food including hot dogs and pizza before presentation of the $10,000 prize money won in the contest.

Bernick’s arena was the only Minnesota arena to advance as a finalist. Hockeyville is an annual competition sponsored by Kraft Foods, the National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association, in which communities compete to demonstrate their commitment to hockey. 

The award will be put toward the rink’s capital campaign currently underway. In April, the rink received a lead campaign gift from Scheels All Sports and is now developing plans for construction.
