BEAR TOSS - FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17
The Markham Waxers are pleased to announce that on Friday,
December 17 in our game versus Pickering, we held our third
Bear Toss. The Waxers teamed up with the Markham Fire
Department's Christmas Toy Drive for The Salvation Army to assist in bringing Christmas to those in the community that would
otherwise go without. We asked that each person attending the game
bring a new, unwrapped stuffed animal which they "Toss"ed on to
the ice after Josh Jacobs opened
the scoring, 8 minutes in to the contest (which the Waxers went on to win 6-4). We
also be collected non-perishable food items for the Markham Food
Bank on this night. All told, we collected 346 stuffed animals,
numerous other toys and an overwhelming amount of food!
The Waxers thank
all of those who participated in the Teddy Bear Toss and Food Drive this
year - it was our biggest and best event to date!
In 2002, the Waxers teamed up with our fans to assist
the Markham-Stouffville Hospital prior
to Christmas. In our first home game of December, Friday the 13th
when we host Ajax, we hosted the first "Teddy Bear Toss".
Those bringing stuffed animals took them into the game for the "Teddy Toss".
Just over five minutes in to the game, Mark Menonte scored to unleash the
stuffed animals. The Markham Waxers Novice team then came on the ice
to collect the animals. All the toys were presented to the hospital after the
Then in 2003, we repeated the process on December
12th, when we hosted Pickering. A new record was set when Josh
Jacobs touched off the Toss with a goal just 2:02 in to the opening
period. The Waxers supplied the gifts from this night to the York
Region Children's Aid Society.
Please make plans to be part of this important night
and assist our local charities!
