Ecolab Recognized with Emmy for Support of 2015 Hockey Day Minnesota

January 27, 2016

Ecolab was recently recognized with a 2015 Board of Governors Emmy Award for its support of “Hockey Day Minnesota 2015: From St. Paul to Kuwait.”

In 2015, Hockey Day Minnesota, an annual event for “the state of hockey,” was transformed into a special military tribute. Hosted at St. Paul’s Holman Field, the program featured 16 hours of original hockey-related programming, including a special tribute to Minnesota soldiers and their families.

The men and women stationed out of Holman Field — home base to the Minnesota National Guard 34th Combat Aviation Brigade and the 2-147th Assault Helicopter Battalion — took part in the event through special reports and coverage of a floor hockey game played by National Guard members in an effort to link Minnesota hockey with the men and women serving our country overseas.

Continuing Ecolab’s legacy of supporting the local community and the St. Paul-based Serving Our Troops Foundation, Ecolab sponsored Hockey Day Minnesota. The Ecolab Foundation also awarded a $25,000 grant to the Saint Paul Serves Foundation to support the event.
