Fundraising for the Alyson Dudek International Ice Center is in full swing, with a special event fast approaching.
The Friends of Hales Corners Park & Pool will host a fundraising event on Saturday, March 23, from 6-9 p.m., at Finn McGuire’s, 5170 S. 108th St., Hales Corners. For donations of $20 per person and $30 per couple, guests can enjoy soda, hor d’oeuvres, door prizes and games.

The Alyson Dudek International Ice Center is a 100-foot by 200-foot Olympic-sized, outdoor skating rink to be built in Hales Corners Park behind the Hales Corners Pool.
Estimated costs for building the ice center are $150,000; to date, fundraising efforts have secured $28,000. Those behind the project hope to open the center in December 2013.
