As the 2018 Saskatchewan Winter Games in the Battlefords draws closer, the list of sponsors continues to grow to ensure this is the biggest and best winter games in its history.
Recently the Winter Games committee received a donation of $10,000 from Terracap Management Inc. (Frontier Centre) to become a gold sponsor for the upcoming games.
Co-chairs David Schell and Rob Rongve along with other committee members were on hand for an official cheque presentation made by Janice Sander, Property Manager of Frontier Centre- Terracap Management and Tina Skinner, VP of Operations, Terracap Management Inc.
Schell said because of the ongoing generosity of the community, the committee has met and surpassed their $700,000 fundraising goal.
