Lehigh Valley, PA – The Lehigh Valley Phantoms, proud AHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, are pleased to announce that the team’s 2016 Teddy Bear Toss presented by Dan’s Camera City, held this past Saturday during the team’s 4-2 win over the Rochester Americans, produced an impressive 4,125 teddy bears and stuffed animals. All teddy bears/stuffed animals were counted first thing this morning and promptly delivered to Valley Youth House for distribution to children across the Lehigh Valley.
Phantoms fans have now donated more 8,600 teddy bears/stuffed animals through the Teddy Bear Toss over the last three seasons (1,728 in 2014, 2,773 in 2015, 4,125 in 2016).
The Phantoms continue their season-high six-game home stand with three more tilts at PPL Center this week.
