Bears for the holidays

The first annual Teddy Bear Toss was held at the Rampage game Saturday night

Hundreds of stuff animals were thrown onto the ice Saturday during the Prince Rupert Rampage game vs Terrace as a part of the first annual Teddy Bear Toss. Fans had an opportunity to buy a bear which will be donated to a child in need this Christmas. The toss took place after the first goal in the second period.

“There are so many children who don’t receive a gift at Christmas time,” said Lt. Sabrina Silvey. “This is a way for us to share that holiday spirit with them.”
