EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips) have partnered with Jersey Mike’s – Evergreen Way, Les Schwab Tires, Broad Stroke Associates, Christmas House and Warm 106.9 to again host Teddy Bear Toss for the third year in a row, Saturday Dec. 2 at Xfinity Arena at 7:05 pm against the Saskatoon Blades.
The Silvertips Teddy Bear Toss is back for the third year in a row now to collect new or gently used stuffed animals to donate to support the Christmas House organization along with WARM 106.9’s Teddy Bear Patrol. Once the Silvertips score their first goal of then evening, fans in attendance are encouraged to throw their teddy bears onto the ice, to be collected and distributed to Christmas House and WARM 106.9 in support of underprivileged families and children during the holiday season.
Christmas House is a 100% volunteer based non-profit organization located in Everett Washington that provides teddy bears and gifts for qualifying, low income families throughout Snohomish County. Last year Christmas House provided over 55,700 gifts to nearly 9,000 children. The Warm 106.9 Teddy Bear Patrol Supplies teddy bears to area hospitals, fire departments, police stations, social services and other organizations to give to children in high stress or frightening situations.
Last year Eetu Tuulola found the back of the net with 31.2 seconds left in the second period against the Portland Winterhawks on December 17, 2016. The goal began the toss and over 8,500 bears were collected that night at XFINITY arena.
Fans in attendance are strongly encouraged to bring their stuffed animal wrapped inside a plastic bag or to utilize stuffed animal wrapping stations around XFINITY Arena prior to throwing them on the ice, to prevent excessive moisture collection on each stuffed animal as it makes contact with the ice surface.
If the Silvertips do not score their first goal of the game within the first pair of 20 minute periods, fans will be asked to throw their teddy bears onto the ice during the second intermission, replacing the intermission’s Chuck-A-Puck activity.
The Silvertips encourage fans to predict the Teddy Bear Toss goal scorer through a contest hosted on the Tips Mobile App, launching today. One randomly selected winner who correctly predicts the Silvertips Teddy Bear Toss goal scorer will receive a signed picture of the goal scorer AND a $50 gift card to the Silvertips Team Store.
Tickets are available at www.everettsilvertips.com/tickets or by calling (425) 252-5100.
