The Decatur Youth Hockey Association is now just one step away from being able to claim their hometown as Hockeyville USA.
The Decatur Youth Hockey Association advanced to the finals of the Kraft Hockeyville USA contest after defeating Albertville Arena in Albertville, Minnesota in the final four round of voting.
Decatur Youth Hockey now moves on to take on Johnstown, Pennsylvania, which defeated Sault Sainte Marie, MI, in the eastern bracket.
Moving into the Finals, Decatur is already assured $75,000 in rink upgrades and is just one round away from winning the grand prize of $150,000.
“The support from the community has been incredible, and we are so grateful for everyone who has voted and helped spread the word. Either way, we know we’ve won because this community has come together to support this effort, spread the word and vote like crazy!” said Jason Habrock, president, Decatur Youth Hockey Association (DYHA).
Voting began today (Monday), and ends at 11:59 p.m. on April 29th. Just like in the other rounds, you can vote online, by calling 1-855-255-5975, and by texting ‘Decatur’ to 35350. You can vote 50 times per day by each method and you can vote both days.
