MHKY – Dig out those teddy bears and haul them to the SMU Ice Arena on Saturday for the annual Cardinal men’s hockey TEDDY BEAR TOSS!!

Fans attending Saturday’s 7:05 p.m. men’s hockey game against Gustavus 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.

Additionally, boxes will be located in the rink and in Saint Mary’s Hall for the Saint Mary’s community to place new and gently-used stuffed animals to be used in the toss. These donations are due by Friday, Dec. 3 at noon.

After the first Saint Mary’s goal, fans are encouraged 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.
