WATERTOWN, S.D.–Tomorrow, a ceremonial groundbreaking will be held on a new $36 million ice arena that’ll be built on Watertown’s east side. Included will be an announcement on a naming rights agreement on the two-sheet facility.

Over the last several months, a fundraising group known as the,”Built It Now Committee” has been raising money to help cover construction costs.

Their goal is to raise $10 million.

The chairwoman of that group is Jodi Driscoll, and she gave KWAT News an update today on where they’re at…

Commitments to date total $8.9 million….

Driscoll says the donations run the gamut, from very small, to very large…

The majority of construction costs will be covered by sales tax revenue bonds.
