The Blazers Booster Club would like to than all the fans for the wonderful response to our annual teddy bear night. They dropped more than 3,500 items on the ice at the end of the game that are shared by 26 different agencies in our wonderful city.
A big thank-you to the Girl Guides and parents, soccer players and our hockey players for scooping the items off the ice. Warm thanks to Zimmer Autosports Ltd for the vans and trucks to load up the bears and to the City staff at Interior Savings Centre for all their help.
Great job done by the Booster Club members who sorted, counted and bagged all the very special bears, gloves (many hand-knitted by fans), toys, blankets and winter wear for children and adults in need.
