Cadillac’s Wexford Civic Center Falls Short of 2019 Kraft Hockeyville Grand Prize

CADILLAC – The Wexford Civic Center in Cadillac fell just short of the first place prize in the 2019 Kraft Hockeyville competition.

They announced Sunday afternoon the Calumet Colosseum in the Upper Peninsula earned the most votes.

The Colosseum will now get some TLC after winning the grand prize of $150,000.

It will also get to host an NHL preseason game.

The Wex in Cadillac finished in third place.

That means it will get at least $10,000 in prize money.

People at the Wex say they are grateful for all the community support and they are happy the winner is from Michigan.

“The whole week has been quite the experience, seeing the support we got from our community. We are happy Calumet won. We like to see a good Michigan team win too. It is disappointing, but it was a great ride while it lasted,” said Todd Foster, the general manager of the Wexford Civic Center.

The Calumet Colosseum is the oldest indoor ice arena in North America.
