The Cowichan Valley Capitals’ annual Teddy Bear Toss will take place on Friday, Dec. 11 when the team takes on the Wenatchee Wild at the Island Savings Centre.

All fans are encouraged to bring a new or slightly used stuffed toy to the game to throw on the ice after the Caps score their first goal.

Opening faceoff is at 7 p.m.

The toys will be collected and donated to local charities who will hand them out to families in need this holiday season.

The Caps are on the road this weekend against West Kelowna, Vernon and Salmon Arm, but will be back home for two games the following weekend. After hosting B.C. Hockey League newcomers Wenatchee on Dec. 11, they will take on the Trail Smoke Eaters on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 2 p.m.
