WENATCHEE – The 2017 Numerica Credit Union’s Winter Ice Gala raised over $12,000 at the Town Toyota Center Friday night. The 5th annual event provides money for the Arena Youth Enrichment fund. The fund, established in 2012, provides non-profit youth groups the opportunity to skate, take classes, or attend shows at the Town Toyota Center who might not otherwise be able to afford to do so.
