The San Antonio Rampage, the top affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes, will host their 6th Annual Teddy Bear Toss this Friday when they host the Texas Stars for a 7 p.m. matchup at the AT&T Center.
Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped stuffed animal to throw onto the ice when the Rampage score their first goal. The teddy bears will be donated to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program. Last year more than 1,000 bears were thrown on the ice and donated to Toys for Tots and Christus Santa Rosa Hospital.
Fans who bring a new, unwrapped stuffed animal to the game will receive a voucher good for one complimentary ticket for a future Rampage home game.
This Friday, the first 1,000 fans through the door will receive a teddy bear to throw on the ice courtesy of H-E-B. Kids will also have a chance to meet and take a photo with Santa Claus.
Leading up to the annual Teddy Bear Toss, Rampage players will be delivering teddy bears, donated by H-E-B, to patients at the Christus Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital downtown campus today at 2 p.m.
The Christus Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital (CSRCH) serves more than 150,000 children each year. CSRCH is a 200-plus bed facility and is the only academic Children’s hospital in San Antonio, partnering with The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio while collaborating with private pediatricians to provide comprehensive pediatric services at one location since 1959.
The Toys-for-Tots mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community and to send a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
This Friday is also a KISS Rocks $1 Drink Night in which fans can get dollar draft beer and fountain sodas at every Friday Rampage home game. Tickets start at $10. For more information or to purchase tickets call 210-444-5554 or visit sarampage.com.
