EDWARDSVILLE – The RP Lumber CENTER development is taking shape with several other local businesses signing up for dasher board sponsorships. The new ice rink, teen center, indoor track and recreational facility is offering advertising opportunities to anyone interested in this new development. The City of Edwardsville’s state-of-the-art facility is the third and final recreational development to be completed as part of the “A Better Place to Play” initiative.
Dasher boards are the walls surrounding the ice of an ice rink, highly visible to spectators and skaters. It’s an ideal place to advertise your business name or logo, and there are approximately 40 advertising spots available. Dasher board advertising at The RP Lumber CENTER is available for $3,000 annually, 5 years at $13,750 or for $25,000 for a 10-year commitment.
