RCU Foundation announces $300,000 gift to Hudson Sports and Civic Center

EAU CLAIRE, WI (May 22, 2023) — The RCU Foundation made a $300,000 gift to the Hudson Hockey Association in support of the remodel of the Hudson Sport and Civic Center. The current facility has been a part of the Hudson community since 1988 and needed upgrades to the safety, HVAC, and accessibility systems to serve the future.

“The generosity of donors such as the Royal Credit Union Foundation, has allowed the Hudson Hockey Association complete the dream of connecting the rinks” states Anthony Aderhold, Hudson Hockey Association Fundraising Chair. “The Royal Credit Union Foundation Community Room in the Sports and Civic Center is a new space that will serve organizations, youth, and community members for years to come.”

“The Royal Credit Union Foundation is proud to support projects that bring communities together,” said John Sackett, President, Royal Credit Union Foundation. “The newly remodeled Sports and Civic center will ensure that those in Hudson and beyond will have a place to gather and play for generations to come.”

The remodel of the Hudson Sports and Civic Center started in December of 2022. Major construction will be completed in June 2023, with the finishing touches being completed by the end of 2023.
