Teddy Bear Toss bears – Save yourself a trip to the store! The Power Play Club will be holding a pre-sale of teddy bears for the annual GWH Teddy Bear Toss, which will be held during the second game of the series against Bemidji State on Saturday, December 2. For $8 per bear, you will receive a voucher indicating the number of bears you've purchased; that voucher can then be redeemed to get your bear(s) during the first game of the series on December 1 or before the game on 12/2. The voucher also serves as a receipt, as purchases of all tossed teddy bears are tax-deductible. In addition to the bears being donated to charity, proceeds from the sale go to support the GWH program.
Registration for the 5th season of the Power Play Club's “Goals for a Goal” Campaign begins Sunday!
