Eagles Teddy Bear Toss This Friday
Surrey, BC - The Surrey Eagles will hold their annual Teddy Bear Toss night this coming Friday, November 30th when the Coquitlam Express pay a visit to the South Surrey Arena.
Fans are encouraged to bring a teddy bear to the game or to purchase one from the Peace Arch Auxiliary who will be selling bears at the game to raise funds. When the Eagles score their first goal, fans can throw their bears onto the ice. The teddy bears collected on Friday will go to the Surrey Christmas Bureau who will give them to children in low-income families.
"This is an important annual event for the Eagles organization," said Director of Sales and Marketing Andrew Delbaere. "At this time of the year, there are many children who wouldn't receive presents over the holidays if not for the efforts of the Surrey Christmas Bureau, so it's a very important cause in our community and one that the Eagles support wholeheartedly."
For tickets to Friday's game, call the Eagles office at 604-531-GOAL (4625).
