    Special benefit ...


    Can anybody tell me if the phrase for the special benefit could be substituted by for? (... refrigerated for those who ...)

    "Sufficient snow had fallen before Christmas to content the skiers, and the big rink, sprinkled every evening, had given the skaters each morning a fresh surface on which to perform their slippery antics.

    The Horror-Horn, E.F.Benson, 1923

    Thnks a lot.
