Gustavus Hill Crew To Host Second Annual Teddy Bear Toss Benefit Friday

Posted on November 28th, 2017 by

ST. PETER, Minn. – Gustavus Adolphus College’s student fan organization, The Hill Crew, is holding its second annual Teddy Bear Toss benefit on Friday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. as the Gustavus men’s hockey team hosts Bethel University.

Gusties collect Teddy Bears after last season’s inaugural toss.

Attendees who bring a new teddy bear or stuffed animal will receive free admission to the game, which will benefit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and Goodwill. After the Gusties score their first goal, fans will throw their teddy bears and stuffed animals onto the ice, where they will be collected and donated to the two Mankato organizations.

Organized entirely by Hill Crew students, the event will take place at the Don Roberts Ice Rink in Lund Center on the Gustavus campus. The general public is encouraged to attend to support the two community organizations.
