The 2019 Steelers “Teddy Bear Toss” will take place on Saturday 14th December when the Fife Flyers will be the visitors.
Once again the Steelers will join forces with Eden Training Solutions and our good friends at Hallam FM and their “Mission Christmas” appeal – ensuring that every child in the local area will have a Christmas present to open this Holiday Period.
“We’ve decided on the 14th December,” said operations manager Shaun Smith “It’s close enough to Christmas but also gives time to those at Eden Training Solutions and Hallam FM to distribute the toys throughout the local area”
The Steelers politely ask that all “Teddy bears, soft toys and presents” are wrapped in either cellophane or a plastic bag when throwing the gifts onto the ice after the Steelers first goal of the night.
“We are always flabbergasted at the generosity and support we achieve on this very special night” continued Smith “to keep the bears and toys clean and undamaged it is in important they are wrapped up so they don’t get dirty when on the ice
“I think the number of gifts donated by Steelers fans last year ran into the thousands and was certainly the biggest return I can remember. We are going to push this event hard between now and the 14th December to ensure that this year it’s even bigger”
