Bulldogs Teddy Bear Toss Night, Saturday, December 12
December 8, 2015
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Port Alberni, BC – The Alberni Valley Bulldogs’ annual Teddy Bear Toss Night will take place on Saturday, December 12th, 2015, at 7:00pm when the Bulldogs host the Trail Smoke Eaters.
Fans are once again being asked to bring new teddy bears to the game, and upon your Alberni Valley
Bulldogs’ first goal send the teddy bears flying onto to the ice. “It always brings a smile to everyone’s face when the Bulldogs score their first goal, the horn goes off and the fans collectively toss their new teddy bears onto the ice,” said Bulldogs’ general manager and head coach Kevin Willison.
The players will deliver all the teddy bears collected that night to local children and seniors the following week.
Fans are reminded that if you cannot attend the game you may drop off your newly purchased teddy bears at the Bulldogs office two hours before the game on Friday, December 11th. The Bulldogs would like to remind all those that will be purchasing a new teddy bear for this great event to shop local and support local merchants.
A helpful tip would be for fans to put their new stuffed toys in clear, see-through plastic bags so that the ice and moisture from the rink surface doesn’t get into the toys.
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs are also hosting their annual Winter Wonderland Skate on Wednesday, December 16th from 8:30pm to 9:30pm at the Alberni Valley Multiplex. As always, this skate is free to attend for the Bulldogs fans, supporters, and the public.
