Canadian accounting firm MNP and the City of Kingston announced Thursday, Dec. 3, 2020 that one ice pad at the INVISTA Centre has been renamed ‘the MNP Rink.’
MNP has two offices in Kingston. According to a release from the City of Kingston, MNP says they are proud to show their support of active living at the municipally-owned recreational facility.
The ice pad naming agreement with MNP will see the City receive $25,000 over the next five years. The City said support from the agreement will assist in advancing City Council’s strategic priority to foster healthy citizens and vibrant spaces.
“This is the start of a great partnership. We love that MNP sees the value of putting their name on this rink in this beautiful City facility, which supports and promotes healthy fun and an active lifestyle,” said Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation and Leisure Services for the City of Kingston. “It will definitely raise awareness of its business.”
“We’re all community members here,” said Jeff Hanley, Partner at MNP. “This facility is a major hub for families and individuals in our city to connect and enjoy things we all cherish as Canadians. Giving back to the community that gives us so much is important to our entire MNP team here in Kingston. We look forward to this partnership with the City to help support our friends and neighbours in such an extraordinary time, and we especially look forward to the time that crowds can gather together to cheer on their team in the MNP Rink.”
The MNP Rink can be accessed by the INVISTA Centre’s south entrance and is located on the south-west side of the facility. 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.
