by Staff Writer / Calgary Flames
Calgary AB –The Calgary Flames charitable arm, the Flames Foundation for Life is pleased to announce the launch event for its newest community initiative. On Saturday March 6, 2010 join the community of Cranston in celebrating the launch of its new state-of-the-art outdoor hockey rink funded by the Flames Foundation for Life.


Join President and CEO for the Calgary Flames, Ken King, along with Harvey the Hound for the opening of the rink at 1:00 p.m., then participate in the family fun activities to be had by all. Partake in the bouncy obstacle course, get caricatured by an artist, enjoy great food and beverage, participate in a high-tech skills competition, and win amazing prizes.

The Flames Foundation for life provided $300 000 to the Cranston Residents Association (CRA) for funding of the refrigerated outdoor hockey rink, complete with zamboni and hockey programs for all ages and levels.

The rink is one of the many features of Cranston’s recreational and banquet facility, Century Hall. 

“Carma Developers and the Cranston Residents Association are very proud of this new facility.  Providing Century Hall and the multipurpose rink for use year round for the social and recreational needs of the community could not have been possible without great partnerships.  A rink such as this is a signature component of the facility, a first for Calgary, and will offer best in class outdoor programs which will be enjoyed by a wide range of users," said David Allen, VP Carma Developers.

The Flames Foundation for Life is the charitable arm of the Calgary Flames through which more than 32 million dollars in funding has already been directed to education, medical research, amateur sport and recreation.

Join in the fun; come down on March 6, 2010 to support the Flames Foundation for Life in doing what it does best, serving communities.
