A new five year sponsor has been announced for an ice pad and adjacent meeting room at the INVISTA Centre.
CUPE 109, a local chapter of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, will assume sponsorship of the current Kingston Transit Rink, as well as the adjacent meeting room and branding in all four ice pads, the City of Kingston said in a release dated Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020. The agreement is valued at $59,800, or $11,800 per year.
Many of the CUPE 109 members work for the City of Kingston, supporting delivery of services and programs for the community.
“The CUPE 109 Rink and CUPE 109 Meeting Room are spaces where people of all ages and abilities can learn, play and stay healthy,” says Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation and Leisure Services. “Some of its members currently work at the INVISTA Centre and are a critical part of the safe delivery of services we provide every day. It’s a pleasure to be able to welcome CUPE 109 as a sponsor for the next five years.”
According to the release, the CUPE 109 sponsorship will bring awareness to its brand throughout the INVISTA Centre. The CUPE 109 Rink and meeting room naming sponsorship includes additional benefits such as logo and ad placement in all four ice pads.
Adam Bol, President of CUPE 109 shared, “You can depend on us. Your local municipal city workers, employees of Kingston Frontenac Housing Corporation and the County of Frontenac ferry workers are here to provide the services you need to make your day possible.”
The City says health and safety precautions are in place to ensure all visitors to the INVISTA Centre can enjoy the ice pads and fitness centre.
