Pacific Gas and Electric Company announced its donation of $25,000 to Napa on Ice, the downtown holiday skating rink that opens to the public Saturday.
The donation will go toward building the rink, hosting a private opening night ceremony to benefit Napa Emergency Women’s Services and donating 100 tickets to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Napa Valley and surrounding towns.
PG&E will also work closely with Napa on Ice to provide information to skating rink visitors about ways they can save energy and money this winter, the utility said in a news release.
“PG&E is always looking for new ways to engage our customers and give back to the community, and we are very excited for Napa residents to experience the Napa on Ice skating rink this holiday season,” said Ezra Garrett, vice president of community relations for PG&E.
Napa on Ice tickets are $12 and include skating and skate rentals. Visit napaonice.com to learn more. To volunteer, email NapaOnIce@yahoo.com.
All charitable contributions are entirely funded by the company’s shareholders and the level of charitable giving does not affect gas and electric rates, PG&E said.
