Donor Highlight Stories:

Accipiter Radar Technologies

Arena A will be named the Accipiter Arena, thanks to the incredible generosity of Dr. Tim Nohara and his company, Accipiter Radar Technologies. The company donated $250,000 to the capital fundraising campaign.

“This is about cultural and recreational vibrancy, it’s about bringing people together,” Dr. Tim Nohara said, adding, “there’s strength in communities that play together.”  

Nohara noted he is certainly looking forward to playing a bit of hockey at the new centre when he is not watching his nieces and nephews and future grandchildren on the ice.

Duliban Insurance

Arena B will be named the Duliban Insurance Arena by virtue of the generous contributions of the Duliban family and the Trillium Mutual Insurance Company, who donated $125,000 and $25,000 to the campaign respectively.

Adam Duliban said the choice to come on board with contribution was a no brainer given his childhood memories of playing hockey in the current Pelham Arena. “Our family has such a history with hockey,” said Adam, “as kids we were found in the arena all the time.”

Brother Jason Duliban said the contribution is a way for the business to give back to the community that has supported its growth. He was quick to add he is excited for the new facility, not only because of the ice, but because of the community the building will generate. “It will shape our community,” said Jason, adding, “recreation creates jobs and generates income.”
