The momentum felt from Kraft Hockeyville continues in Cochrane. 

While we didn't officially take home the 2024 title, the community still came out a winner with donations continuing to pour in. 

The Calgary Flames Foundation has generously donated $25,000 to go towards upgrades to the 50-year-old Cochrane Arena. 

Spray Lake Sawmills (SLS) CEO Erin Wagner said this donation was completely unexpected. 

"We're so grateful the Flames Foundation reached out to us shortly after the completion of the campaign and said we'd like to recognize all of what was done and donate $25,000 towards the upgrades at the Cochrane Arena."

Between this donation and $25,000 from Kraft Hockeyville for placing in the top four, Wagner said they will come up with a plan on how to best use the money. 

"There's lots of behind the scenes stuff that we can spend those dollars on, but we'd love for the community to be able to enjoy what we spend the money on. So I would say over the next month or two we're really going to be taking a hard look at how we can best use those funds that the community can best appreciate."

Earlier this week, it was announced that 10,000 lbs of food will be donated to the Helping Hands Society of Cochrane & Area from Kraft Hockeyville.
