Jr. Sabres say "Thank You!" for Teddy Bear Toss success
Jr. Sabres say "Thank You!" for Teddy Bear Toss success

The Buffalo Junior Sabres wish to extend their deepest gratitude to fans who came out on Monday, December 19 and tossed teddy bears and other stuffed animals on the ice following the team's first goal.  More than 100 bears were collected in the team's inaugural Teddy Bear Toss and were donated to the Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association.

The Alumni, in turn, will turn these toys over for distribution on the morning of Christmas Eve by Sabres alumnus and broadcaster Rob Ray, who along with Buffalo Police visits several underpriveleged families that day.

As a junior-A level hockey club oeprated by Sabres Alumni, the Buffalo Junior Sabres are pleased to assist the Alumni's charity efforts this holiday season and acknowledge the support of their fans for making this possible.

Video of the goal and toss will be included in this week's edition of "Junior Sabres Journal", a video highlight segment to be released December 22 on the Jr. Sabres' websire: www.buffalojuniorsabres.com.  It will also be featured during one of the intermissions at the Buffalo Sabres' next home game at First Niagara Center, December 26.
