Gamblers set for 14th Annual Teddy Bear Toss

Press Release 

Green Bay (Feb. 12, 2013) – There will be bears in the air this Saturday night, February 16 as the Green Bay Gamblers present their 14th annual Teddy Bear Toss Night presented by Community First Credit Union. It’s typically the Gamblers’ biggest night of the year! The Gamblers host Cedar Rapids at 7:05 pm at the Resch Center.

Every fan is asked to bring a new teddy bear to the game. When the Gamblers score their first goal, everyone tosses their bear on the ice. The donated bears will be picked up and given to pediatric patients at Aurora BayCare Medical Center and clinics as well as other community organizations.

More than 7,000 teddy bears were tossed on the ice at last year’s event. Only a few hundred bears were collected when the toss first started more than a decade ago and has become a must see event for thousands each year.

Tickets available at all Ticket Star locations, including the Resch Center box office, by phone 494.3401 or toll free 800.895.0071 and on-line at
