Icemen raising funds through “Teddy Bear Toss” Dec. 1

Team partnering with The Brick to benefit charity

The Wetaskiwin Icemen are once again partnering with a local business to support the Stollery Children’s Hospital and Wetaskiwin Health Foundation through the second annual “Teddy Bear Toss” Sunday, December 1.

The Capital Junior Hockey League team is partnering with The Brick for the home game versus Leduc. Special Brick teddy bears will be for sale for $20 at the game and when the Icemen score their first goal, everyone is invited to toss their bears out onto the ice.

After the toss, teddy bears will be collected and donated to the Wetaskiwin Health Foundation.

Proceeds from teddy bear sales will be donated to the Stollery Children’s Hospital.

Teddy bears are also for sale at The Brick Wetaskiwin now until Dec. 1 during their regular business hours.

Game time is 6 p.m. at the Twin Arenas in Wetaskiwin.
