For the 12th time in Stockton Hockey history, the team will hold a Teddy Bear Toss, set to take place at Stockton Arena on Saturday, January 21!
That means that fans will once again be encouraged to collect teddy bears and other stuffed animals and when the Heat score their first goal on that game, you and the rest of the Stockton faithful spring to action and toss your bears onto the ice which will then be collected, counted and then donated to local children in need.
Last year was absolutely fantastic because we collected more bears than ever before! A total of 8,231 bears were thrown onto the ice, obliterating the previous Stockton Hockey record of 5,835 bears collected during an ECHL game back in 2011.
That’s 2,396 more stuffed animals then the previous record!
Well this year we want to top that mark! Start collecting your bears now, tell your friends and family to do the same, and don’t miss out on this incredibly fun promotion all for a good cause!
