Sting Set to Kick Off 2023 Season of Giving this Weekend

26th Annual Sarnia Sting Teddy Bear Toss presented by Finch Ford Lincoln | Purchase Tickets
One of the most highly anticipated games on the Sting schedule each season, the Teddy Bear Toss will see #StingNation make it rain teddy bears onto the ice following the first Sting goal of the afternoon!
The annual event gives the Sarnia Sting and fans, in partnership with Finch Ford Lincoln and the Salvation Army to help provide a Christmas gift to youth in our community who may not have one otherwise. Fans are asked to bring new bears only to the game for donation. Those unable to attend the event can also contribute if they desire by dropping off stuffed toys to Finch Ford Lincoln, where all bears collected from the event will be on display before distribution ahead of the holidays.
Through 25 years, over 79,200 stuffed toys have been donated as part of the annual Sting Teddy Bear Toss.
