Toss your Teddy when the Steelheads score

As posted on the website, November 29, 2012.

Mississauga Steelheads fans will be tossing their Teddy Bears on the ice when the home team scores on the visiting London Knights in Ontario Hockey League action this Sunday at the Hershey Centre.

Teddy Bears will be on sale from the time the gates open at 1 p.m. until the Steelheads score their first goal. The bears can be purchased for a suggested donation of $3.

Volunteers from Sleeping Children Around The World will be selling the bears. Proceeds will go to build beds for children in underdeveloped countries and to buy mosquito nets to protect kids from malaria.

At the same time, the bears that have been tossed will be collected and donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Peel Region for children in need.

Plenty of tickets are available for Sunday's game. They can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
