ICE Teddy Bear Toss aims to warm community

 

After a successful ‘Ice Cube Sticks’ initiative, that garnered $2,200 for the East Kootenay Foundation for health during the November 28 game vs. the Edmonton Oil Kings, the Kootenay ICE Hockey Club will once again be taking part in the traditional A&W Bear, Toque and Mitten Toss on December 7 when the Prince Albert Raiders are in town.

Fans are encouraged to bring new and unused (due to distribution in health care facilities) winter wear, clothing and teddy bears to the game to launch onto the ice after Kootenay scores their first goal.

The ICE will be distributing the winter clothing and teddy bears to health care facilities and the Salvation Army in an effort to keep the young and old warm during the winter months.

Tickets are available at the Kootenay ICE Office or by calling 250-417-0322.
