Teddy-toss night returns to ISC
Filling the rink on Zimmer Autosport Teddy Bear Night will benefit Christmas Amalgamated.
The Kamloops Blazers are hosting the Moose Jaw Warriors on Saturday, Dec. 1, at Interior Savings Centre.
Christmas Amalgamated will receive one dollar for each ticket sold, if a capacity crowd of 5,464 is reached.
As of KTW’s press deadline, 3,735 tickets had been sold.
Fans are asked to bring teddy bears on Saturday and launch them onto the ice after the first Blazer goal.
If the Blazers don’t score, the bears will fly onto the ice when the final buzzer sounds.
“Over almost 20 years, it is estimated that about 40,000 teddy bears have been collected and distributed in the community,” a Blazer press release said.
