The Curry College Hockey Team’s Annual Teddy Bear Toss fundraising event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7th when the Colonels take on the UMASS Boston Beacons. This is the 5th consecutive year that the Curry College Hockey team has hosted this fundraising event. This year’s even is in conjunction with Hockey Cares For Kids. An organization whose mission is to utilize the game of hockey to enhance the quality of life of economically underprivileged youth. The annual Teddy Bear Toss event has been raising money and collecting bears/toys for the less fortunate during the holiday season since its initiation in 2014 and continues to have an emotional impact on recipients and participants alike.
Come show the team your support and see a great game. Game stars at 6:50 pm and if you bring a Teddy Bear donation you get free admission.
In the week leading up to the game the players from the hockey team will have a booth set up in the Student Center for people to buy a Teddy Bear Toss T-shirt, buy a teddy bear to toss, or make a donation of some kind. Then during the game, once the Colonels score their first goal you get to throw your Teddy Bear on to the ice in celebration of the goal.
We had a great day in Malden at the Malden YMCA bringing our Hockey in the Street program and our anti-bullying message to kids who had never played hockey before. Bruins Alumni players David A. Jensen, Glen Featherstone and DAJ Hockey Instructor Shawn Hogan presented the program and oversaw the instruction and game.
Mayor Gary Christenson stopped by to say hello to the kids and the parents and to welcome Hockey Cares For Kids to Malden.
Malden's top Comic, David Russo stopped by to talk to the kids about diversity and inclusion and how important the game of hockey, making good decisions and being kind to others have all been in his life.
Hockey Cares For Kids partnered with Joe Crowley of Malden's Pisa Pizza, Malden Housing Authority and the Malden YMCA. Thank you all for your generous support.
