Penguins Hosting Teddy Bear Toss Dec. 2 & 17
PENGUINS TEAM UP WITH TOBYHANNA ARMY DEPOT
FOR 13TH ANNUAL TEDDY BEAR TOSS
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – The holidays are just a few weeks away and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins are calling upon your generosity in helping our area children. The Penguins are asking fans to bring an unwrapped new plush toy out to Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza for the 13th Annual Teddy Bear Toss.
The Penguins have once again teamed up with Tobyhanna Army Depot for the Teddy Bear Toss, being held during two home games in December: Friday, December 2 versus the Portland Pirates and Saturday, December 17 against the Norfolk Admirals.
During the first intermission of each game, fans can toss their stuffed toys onto the ice, where they will be collected by members of the Tobyhanna Army Depot and later distributed to less fortunate children throughout the area as part of “Operation Santa Claus.”
Over 14,000 teddy bears have been collected during the 12-year history of the event.
