WINDSOR, CO. – 92.9 The Bear, an iHeart Media Station and Pedersen Toyota Fort Collins are proud to team up for the 6th annual Colorado Eagles “Teddy Bear Toss” on Saturday, December 8th, as the Eagles take on the San Diego Gulls. The Colorado Eagles and 92.9 The Bear will be asking Eagles fans to help make the holidays a little more special for thousands of disadvantaged children across Northern Colorado. During that night’s game against the Gulls, fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently-used teddy bear or stuffed animal to the arena and toss it onto the ice after the first Eagles goal is scored. These bears will then be collected and distributed to the Northern Colorado Children’s Charities.
"I've always loved the holidays. I love them even more with the Bear Toss at the Budweiser Events Center with The Colorado Eagles," Nate Wilde from 92.9 The Bear expressed. "To witness a few thousand bears falling from the sky and onto the ice at an Eagles game is amazing in itself, but to know that those bears will be in the hands of a child in need makes it even more special. 92.9 The Bear thanks The Colorado Eagles, The Budweiser Events Center, and Pedersen Toyota for being a part of the Bear Toss game."
If fans are unable to bring a bear, or if they would like to have more than one bear to throw onto the ice, a limited number of bears will be available in exchange for a small donation to the Colorado Eagles Foundation. The bears will be available that night at the 92.9 The Bear booth in the Water Valley Tap on the main concourse.
Don’t worry if you are unable to make it to the Teddy Bear Toss game you can still help. We have three drop off locations at the 92.9 The Bear Studios (iHeartMedia, 4270 Byrd Drive Loveland, Colorado), Pedersen Toyota in Fort Collins or the Colorado Eagles Holiday Store at the Promenade Shops at Centerra.
The Eagles return to action when they travel to Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, California to take on the Bakersfield Condors on Saturday, November 17that 8:00pm MT.
