The West Kelowna Warriors Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is pleased to announce that the annual Teddy Bear Toss will take place on Friday, December 15th against their Interior Division rival, the Penticton Vees at Royal LePage Place.
Fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently used stuffed animal to the game and will be tossed on the ice after the Warriors first goal of the night. Emco Plumbing will be on hand to collect the stuffed animals and distribute them to children within the community of West Kelowna.
In addition to the Teddy Bear Toss, for the first time in Warriors history, Shaw TV will be broadcasting the game live throughout the entire Okanagan Valley. The game will be featured on Shaw channel number 11 as well as channel number 105 on Shaw Blue Sky TV. Warriors Director of Business Operations Alex Draper will be hosting the broadcast at ice level with Warriors play-by-play broadcaster Trevor Miller providing the play-by-play commentary and Tim Hogg, voice of the KIJHL’s Summerland Steam, joining the broadcast with colour commentary.
“The Teddy Bear Toss is always such a special night on the calendar for everyone,” commented Warriors Director of Business Operations Alex Draper, “Having Shaw TV on board with us this year to broadcast the game makes an already great night even better.”
