“We join the people of Tyne Valley in mourning this heartbreaking loss. The centre was more than a skating rink - it was home to countless community events and provided a real gathering place for people from Tyne Valley and beyond,” said Socke MacDonald, Territory Manager, PEI, Moosehead Breweries.
“In our own history, Moosehead has experienced devastating fires at our breweries on two occasions,” said Andrew Oland, President, Moosehead Breweries. “We understand the impact of these catastrophic events and are proud to lend our support.”
From January 20 to February 29, 2020, one dollar from every case of Moosehead beer sold at any PEI Liquor Retail Outlet will be donated to the Tyne Valley Community Sports Centre’s GoFundMe fundraiser, to a maximum of $20,000. Donations will be made from the purchase of any case (6-packs or larger) of Moosehead Lager, Moosehead Light, Moosehead Pale Ale, Moosehead Premium Dry, Moosehead Radler or Alpine.
The Tyne Valley Community Sports Centre was built in 1964 and renovated in 2000. The rink’s insurance will not cover the total amount required to rebuild the facility, which prompted the community to establish its GoFundMe fundraising campaign. Donations to the campaign can be made by visiting rallyforthevalley2020.ca.
