All the hard work to try and make High River the next Kraft Hockeyville comes with the payoff Thursday, July 19.

While we didn't win the grand prize of a quarter million dollars, we did finish in the top three, which was good for $25,000 from Kraft.

The NHL Players Association kicked in $10,000 and Alta-Link will donate $25,000 as well, to make the total $60,000, all going to arena upgrades at the Bob Snodgrass Recreation Complex and new hockey equipment for Foothills Minor Hockey.

We'll also get a visit from New York Islanders forward, Jordan Eberle.

It all gets going Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the High River Farmers Market on 4th Avenue downtown.
