Junior Sabres' Teddy Bear Toss Set for December 18 | Community Spirit
(Amherst, NY) – The Buffalo Junior Sabres, ranked #7 in Canadian Junior “A” hockey this week by the Canadian Junior Hockey League, will hold its second annual Teddy Bear Toss, sponsored by Dent Neurologic Institute, as part of its home game against the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots on Tuesday, December 18 beginning at 6:30pm at the Northtown Center at Amherst, 1615 Amherst Manor Drive, between Maple and Millersport.
Fans are asked to bring a new and unwrapped teddy bear or other stuffed animal. When the Jr. Sabres score their first goal of the game, fans are invited to toss their toys on the ice. All items collected will be later distributed by members of the Buffalo Sabres Alumni and Buffalo Police Department as part of their annual joint effort to bring more holiday cheer to local families in need.
The Buffalo Sabres have kindly provided prizes to be given away, including team apparel. Sabretooth is scheduled to appear as well.
