PHOENIX – The Phoenix RoadRunners announced that they will hold their second-annual “Teddy Bear Toss” on Saturday when they host the Long Beach Ice Dogs at US Airways Center.
The RoadRunners are the ECHL affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes of the National Hockey League and the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League.
The team encourages fans who are attending the game to bring a teddy bear with them to toss onto the ice following the first goal scored by Phoenix. The teddy bears will be collected and donated to the Maricopa County Head Start Program.
Fans who do not bring a teddy bear to the game will be able to purchase one for $5 on the concourse from the Stuffington Bear Factory.
The team also announced that for the second year in a row it has donated 1,200 tickets to low-income families from Head Start so that they can be in attendance at the game.
