Avera Teddy Bear Toss set for Dec. 1

By Jim Olander, 11/15/12, 4:30PM CST


Bring your Teddy Bears to the game on Saturday, December 1st for the Avera “Teddy Bear Toss.” Fans are encouraged to bring NEW stuffed animals to the game and toss them onto the ice after the Stampede’s first goal against the Lincoln Stars. Game time is 7:05 PM. Fans should write their section, row and seat number on their bears for a chance to win several fabulous prizes from the Stampede and Avera!

All stuffed animals that are collected will be brought directly to the pediatric unit of the Avera hospital and distributed next week by the Stampede players. The players make a visit every year around Christmas to brighten the spirits of those who can’t be home for the holidays.
