Prince George, BC – The Prince George Cougars are proud to support the Salvation Army and RCMP Victim Services with the Annual Teddy Bear Toque Toss on Saturday, December 17th when the Cougars take on the Vancouver Giants at the CN Centre. December 17th is also Ugly Christmas Sweater night. Fans are encouraged to wear their ugliest holiday sweaters for the chance to win some great prizes courtesy of our sponsors.

The Teddy Bear and Toque Toss game has become one of the most popular nights during the Cougars season. When the Cougars score their first goal of the game, fans will have the opportunity to launch their Teddy Bear and Toque donations onto the ice. The donations will benefit the RCMP Victim Services Unit, the Salvation Army and other organizations in need over the holiday season. Stuffed dogs provided by Husky and Mohawk and teddy bears provided by Shaw will be available for purchase by cash donation on the concourse that evening; the cash donations will support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Prince George.

The Prince George Minor Hockey Association, Wood Wheaton Supercentre and Save On Foods will be on hand to assist with the clean-up on the ice.

“Our Annual Teddy Bear Toque Toss is a great way to celebrate the Christmas season with family and friends and gives our fans another opportunity to brighten the holidays for those in need,” said Cougars Vice President, Brandi Brodsky.

Groups of 15 or more can purchase tickets at discounted group rates; for more information contact the Cougars office at 250-561-0783.
