LV Phantoms Collect 4,125 Teddy Bears for VYH at Teddy Bear Toss Game
The Lehigh Valley Phantoms, proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, announced that the team’s 2016 Teddy Bear Toss presented by Dan’s Camera City, held this past Saturday during the team’s 4-2 win over the Rochester Americans, produced an impressive 4,125 teddy bears and stuffed animals. All teddy bears/stuffed animals were counted and delivered by Zamboni to Valley Youth House, the Phantom’s neighbors on Linden St. in Allentown, for distribution to children across the Lehigh Valley. The teddy bears and stuffed animals will benefit Valley Youth House’s Project Child, the organization’s child abuse prevention program.
Phantoms fans have now donated more 8,600 teddy bears/stuffed animals for Valley Youth House through the Teddy Bear Toss over the last three seasons (1,728 in 2014, 2,773 in 2015, 4,125 in 2016). Thank you, Phantoms!
