Canes Set For Teddy Bear & Toque Toss Dec. 6

It’s an annual tradition and one of the highlights of the Lethbridge Hurricanes season!

The 19th annual Canadian Tire/Global TV Teddy Bear & Toque Toss Night is set for Saturday, December 6th when the Hurricanes take on the Red Deer Rebels at the ENMAX Centre at 7:00pm.

This year a new element has been added to the evening. With the cold weather approaching, both Canadian Tire locations are also selling toques and with the purchase of a teddy bear OR toque for $9.99, fans will also receive a ticket to the game.

Last season, former Hurricanes Forward Russ Maxwell scored the goal that sent the stuffed animals onto the ice with 3:07 left in the second period with Prince Albert. Over 23-hundred bears were donated and distributed across Southern Alberta. Each year the collection of bears goes to help organizations like: Chinook Regional Hospital – Pediatrics Ward, the Interfaith Food Bank, Piikani Youth Centre, RCMP Victim Services Unit, Blood Tribe Police, Head Dress Society, Salvation Army, Streets Alive and 1st Choice Savings and Credit Union on behalf of Lethbridge Family Services Angel Tree for Kids.

Following teddy bear night, some of the players will make a special delivery to visit kids and deliver the bears to the Chinook Regional Hospital. Details on the delivery to the hospital will be finalized in the coming weeks.
