WINONA, Minn. — The Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota men’s hockey team will hold the sixth annual Teddy Bear Toss Saturday, Nov. 21, during the Cardinals’ 7 p.m. home game against St. Olaf at the Saint Mary’s Ice Arena.
Fans attending are encouraged to bring a teddy bear or stuffed animal—preferably new, but those in good used condition will also be accepted and appreciated. Teddy bears will also be available at the arena for a donation of $1.
After the first Saint Mary’s goal in the first period—or at the end of the first period if no goals have been scored—fans will have an opportunity to throw their teddy bears and/or stuffed animals onto the ice. They will then be collected and distributed to children in the Winona area through the Toys for Kids program.
