Curvature Donates $100,000 for Scoreboard at New Ice Skating Rink in Goleta

Curvature, an innovative IT infrastructure and service provider, on Monday announced its contribution in bringing ice skating to the Goleta community.

Curvature’s $100,000 donation will materialize in the form of a scoreboard for the Studio Rink, upon which the company’s name will appear.

The Greater Santa Barbra Ice Skating Association will continue working with other local businesses to continue to raise the remaining funds needed to complete construction. Once construction costs are covered, the nonprofit will be self-sustaining from revenues.

The Ice in Paradise ice skating arena will feature two rinks, a 200-foot-by-85-foot National Hockey League-sized rink and a smaller 100-foot-by-60-foot studio rink providing programs for ice skaters, learn to skate, general skating, figure skaters, ice hockey for boys, girls and adults as well as adaptive ice sports for mobility impaired athletes.

“This donation will help us to provide permanent public ice recreation serving youth, adults, students and families in our community,” GSBISA board president Kathy Mintzer said. “We thank Curvature for their significant contribution and helping us make Ice in Paradise a reality.”

Groundbreaking on the skating arena was held on Nov. 20, 2014, and the facility is expected to be open to the public September.

— Jennifer Ono is the capital campaign director for the Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
