Sarnia teddy bear toss kick off

Press Release

The 16th annual Teddy Bear Toss will take place December 8th at the RBC Centre when the Sarnia Sting host the Guelph Storm in Ontario Hockey League action.

Fans are asked to bring a stuffed bear (or any stuffed animal), to the game. When the Sting score their first goal, fans can toss the stuffed animals on the ice. The bears are then collected and donated to 13 different charities in the community through the Salvation Army.

Over the last fifteen years, over 42,000 stuffed animals have been collected and donated to local charities in the community.

In the previous fifteen Teddy Bear tosses no Sting player has scored two Teddy Bear Toss goals. Nickolas Latta and Daniel Nikandrov go into this year's game as the only Sting players that can accomplish this feat, Latta scored in 2011 and Nikandrov in 2012.
