Mammoth ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ to bring teddy bears to children

The Colorado Mammoth kicked-off the 2017-2018 season at Pepsi Center Saturday night with a special ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ to benefit A Precious Child.

The teddy bear toss, an NLL first, was triggered when the Mammoth scored their first goal in the second quarter, a rifle from Mammoth newcomer Ryan Benesch.

All single game tickets purchased for the home opener included a bear to toss onto the field and season ticket holders were offered opportunities to purchase extras.

The thousands of bears dressed in their Mammoth shirts that landed onto the turf, will be donated to A Precious Child and the children that they serve.

A Precious Child provides children in need with opportunities and resources to empower them to achieve their full potential.
