MNP and the City of Kingston are pleased to announce that one of the INVISTA Centre’s four ice pads will now be known as the MNP Rink. As a Canadian accounting and business consulting firm with two offices in Kingston, MNP is proud to show its support of active living at this popular facility.
The ice pad naming agreement with MNP will see the City receive $25,000 over the next five years. Support from the agreement assists 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,” says Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation and Leisure Services. “It will definitely raise awareness of its business.”
"We're all community members here," Jeff Hanley, Partner at MNP remarks. "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 south entrance and is located on the south-west side of the facility. Health and safety precautions are in place to ensure all visitors to the INVISTA Centre can enjoy the ice pads and fitness centre.
