Planning for the World Junior A Challenge in December continues to move forward. The organizing committee is now looking for sponsors.
Things look good on the municipal front. The MD and town of Bonnyville have been backers from day 1 and both Cold Lake and St. Paul have agreed to put the money forward to host exhibition games before the tournament begins. Rob Hunter says demand for sponsorships is already high.”We’ve had a lot of expressions of interest from businesses before our premium marketing packages were ready. We know that the interest is high and that people are very excited about it. We look forward to working with businesses in the community to not only help us out in putting on a great event but to help them get their name out there at this time of the economy being a bit slow.”
A lot of events surrounding the challenge are planned as well. Expect beer gardens, live music, DJs and more.
