On Saturday, Teddy Bears and Toques will be littering the ice at CN Centre when the Prince George Cougars take on the Victoria Royals.

Anyone who attends the game is encouraged to bring a new or gently used stuffed toy or warm winter clothing item to the game where it can be thrown onto the ice after the Cougars score their first goal.

Vice President of Business Andy Beesley told MyPGNow.com the event always generates a lot of buzz.

“It’s just one of those things that’s one of the most anticipated and popular events in Northern British Columbia. It’s a great night because it is just tons of fun for the fans since there’s just nothing like it when you see the first goal scored and all of those teddy bears reign over the glass, it’s really quite amazing.”

“We’re asking fans to bring teddy bears of course, which will get distributed through the Salvation Army and many parts of the city but we’re also asking fans to bring warm winter clothing like toques, socks, scarfs, socks, jackets and those all get distributed to various agencies to people who could really use the help over the holiday months.”

In addition, someone will be going home with a little extra cash just in time for the Holiday Season.

“If you buy a 50/50 ticket on Saturday night you’re going to win what is probably going to be a really big jackpot anyway but there is a previously unclaimed jackpot (November 9th) of well over four thousand dollars that’s going to be tacked on to whatever the winner gets.”

Puck drop is at 7:00 pm from CN Centre.
