All proceeds of Rideau Thunder will go towards the Friends of the Arena (FOTA).

FOTA is an Advisory Committee of Westport, Ontario Municipal Council, was recently created to assist the Village in upgrading the aging infrastructure of the arena. The Committee has compiled a “Wish List” which totals approximately $320,500. To date, we have raised over $94,000 in donations, including a $50,000 prize from AVIVA. We are able to issue tax receipts for income tax purposes.

To date we have insulated the west wall, installed new exit and emergency lighting, upgraded washrooms, added new rubber matting in players benches and some dressing rooms and laid electric cables in the Zamboni ramp. We are in the process of adding upgrades to the canteen.
