The Dryden GM Ice Dogs and the Dryden DREAM Committee are coming together in support of each other and the community later this month.

The two will partner to host the first annual Hometown Proud – Teaming UP with Dream event at the Dryden Memorial Arena, when the Red Lake Miners are in town to play the Ice Dogs on February 23.

Throughout the night, there will be a number of fund-raising activities that will support both the DREAM Committee and the Ice Dogs.

“For the DREAM Committee the partnership with the Dryden GM Ice Dogs makes total sense. It’s all about the arena, and the Dryden GM Ice Dogs are a high profile arena user,” said Marnie Oliphant, DREAM Committee Co-Chair.

“We have had many hometown proud boys be a part of the Ice Dogs and we are all about our community and its members. It’s about working together to meet our DREAM! The arena is the hub of our community, it has been a huge part of my family’s life and many other people’s lives. It’s the heart of our city and the Ice Dogs play a huge role.”

“DREAM shares a vision with the Dryden GM Ice Dogs for a better Dryden, we are organizations that are of the community and for the community. Volunteer driven and focused on the betterment of Dryden, we partner naturally and can complement one another moving forward,” said Ice Dogs President, Mike Sveinson.

“Their goals benefits the team. A better, more modern more spacious arena is an objective that the Ice Dogs and their fans will benefit from for years to come. Not just in terms of the comfort of out players year by year, but in terms of recruit,” Sveinson added.

The game between the Ice Dogs and the Miners on February 23 will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Dryden Memorial Arena.
