Every year there is Friends on Ice Foundation a beautiful 600 m2 artificial ice rink has been installed in the Open Air Theater in Ede, with a grand café, cookie and zopie, poffertjes stall and chip shop. The Friends on Ice Foundation's primary goal is to organize a sporting event for all residents, young and old, of the Municipality of Ede and the surrounding area, where everyone can get their skates out of the grease and enjoy old-Dutch cosiness!
The Foundation has no commercial purposes. One will, in case of a profitable operation, contribute financially to projects of the Friends Hospital Gelderse Vallei Foundation, projects that are not eligible for government subsidy. In this way we support various projects where the money is desperately needed.
