Fresno Monsters 6th annual Teddy Bear Toss

by Abigail Martin

The Fresno Monsters hockey team held its 6th annual Teddy Bear Toss to support the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation at the Gateway Ice Center on Dec. 6.

Fans had the chance to celebrate the Monsters’ first goal of the game by throwing stuffed animals onto the ice. The team collected new toys for children in the Central Valley who may not have received a gift from Santa otherwise.

The Toys for Tots foundation was established by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 1991. The foundation collects new, unwrapped toys at collections sites in communities all across the U.S. beginning in October of each year. Marines and volunteers distribute the toys in December.

The Monsters outscored their opponents, the Valencia Flyers, 5-3. Central California Life was there to cheer on the Monsters and give away two $50 Build-A-Bear Workshop Certificates and two large teddy bears.
