Everblades Hold Teddy Bear Jersey Auction Benefitting Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation 

Children from Golisano Children’s Hospital participate in designing player-worn jerseys
 

ESTERO, Fla. – Join the Florida Everblades for an exciting virtual auction on the DASH app featuring exclusive game-worn Teddy Bear Jerseys this week! Starting Wednesday, December 6 at 10 am, fans can bid on these special jerseys, with all net proceeds benefiting the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. To participate in the auction, visit HERE.
 
Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 9 at 7:00 pm as the Everblades proudly wear these unique jerseys during the Teddy Bear Toss, presented by Fifth Third Bank, at Hertz Arena while facing off against the South Carolina Stingrays. Secure your tickets to any of the three home games this week by visiting HERE.
 
During Saturday’s game, the Everblades will don specialty-themed jerseys that were hand drawn and designed by children at Golisano Children’s Hospital. The Everblades main crest logo for the teddy bear toss jersey was designed by Jayden Torres, who is a blades fan and battling a rare disease. Jayden attended last year’s Teddy Bear Toss game then was back in the hospital on the actual day the team delivered the bears to the local hospital the following week. These unique jerseys will be auctioned off to fans via Dash following the game.
 
Kathleen Casey the President and Founder of Bear Necessities shared how truly grateful they are to be co-sponsoring the Teddy Bear Toss again this year. “We are honored for this tremendous partnership with the Florida Everblades. The outpouring of generosity from the entire community is overwhelming; when you see the Teddy Bears flying out onto the ice, chills run up and down your spine, it's very touching. The proceeds from the Jersey's will greatly assist us in our mission to bring hope and joy to children and their families battling cancer. We can't begin to express our thanks! Hope to see you all there for an exciting night and a big win for the Everblades!”
