The Winnipeg Ice and Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba have teamed up to host an annual Teddy Bear Toss next week.
The Ice will play the Kamloops Blazers on Saturday, December 7 at Wayne Fleming Arena. All fans who plan to attend are encouraged to bring a new-condition teddy bear to throw on the ice after the Ice score their first goal.
The hockey club is asking fans to secure their teddy bears in a plastic bag to ensure they don’t get damaged or dirty on the ice surface.
All teddy bears will be collected and donated to the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba by Ice players.
Special guests of the Children’s Hospital will be in attendance, along with bears available for purchase.
Tickets to the game are available online and at the door. Puck drop is 7:30 p.m.
