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.
