Holy Cross To Hold Teddy Bear Toss On Saturday

Dec. 4, 2008

WORCESTER, Mass. - The College of the Holy Cross Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) will be sponsoring a Teddy Bear Toss at the Hart Center this Saturday, December 6, to benefit the Toys for Tots program. The event will take place during halftime of the men's basketball game against Western Michigan (tip-off is set for 12:30 p.m.) and during the first intermission of the men's ice hockey game against Bentley (the puck drops at 7:00 p.m.).

Fans are encouraged to bring a new or `slightly loved' teddy bear or stuffed animal to the games. SAAC members will have numbered labels that people, if interested, can purchase for a donation, with their name recorded to the number of the label. At halftime of the basketball game and during the first intermission of the hockey game, the stuffed animals will be tossed onto the court or the ice. The labeled bear that lands closest to the center will win a $25.00 gift certificate to Chuck's Steak House in Auburn.
