Steelheads Host Annual Teddy Bear Toss

Press Release

Mississauga, ON - The Mississauga Steelheads are pleased to announce that they will be holding their annual Teddy Bear Toss presented by Canadian Tire on Sunday December 2nd, when they take on the London Knights at 2:00pm at the Hershey Centre. After the Steelheads first goal, all bears tossed onto the ice will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Peel Region. Proceeds from the sale of the bears will be donated to Sleeping Children Around the World, who will be in attendance selling the bears along the concourse. As the sponsor of the event Canadian Tire stores have generously donated 1,500 bears for Sunday’s game.

Teddy Bears will be on sale from the time the gates open at 1:00pm until the Steelheads score their first goal. Bears can be purchased for a suggested donation of $3.00 and $5.00 for 2. Volunteers from Sleeping Children Around the World will be selling the bears with all proceeds going towards building beds for children in underdeveloped countries, as well as buying mosquito nets to protect children from malaria.

At the same time, the Teddy Bear Toss provides local support with all of the tossed bears being donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Peel Region to be distributed to children in need.

The Steelheads, Sleeping Children Around the World, and the Boys and Girls Club of Peel Region are thankful to have the support of our local Canadian Tire stores, and are looking forward to another successful campaign this year.
