Wetaskiwin Icemen, The Brick team up for ‘bears’

‘Bear Toss’ for The Stollery Children’s Hospital

A local sports team and a local business are teaming up to help the Stollery Children’s Hospital with a great campaign this holiday season.

The Wetaskiwin Icemen and The Brick in Wetaskiwin are teaming up for a “Teddy Bear Toss” campaign to benefit the children’s hospital in Edmonton, and also the Wetaskiwin Healthcare Centre.

Volunteer Ray Montroy said this is the first year the Icemen have worked with The Brick on this campaign.

Special teddy bears are available for sale for $20 at The Brick, he noted. The proceeds for these bears will go to benefit the children’s hospital. The bears will also be available for sale at the Icemen’s Dec. 21 home game at the arena. Then, at the Icemen’s home game the next day, Dec. 22, bears will be available for sale through the first period.

Between the first and second period, the teddy bear toss onto the ice will occur.

Montroy noted all of the bears will be collected and donated to the Wetaskiwin hospital.
