Phantoms In The Community:

The Lehigh Valley Phantoms hosted their sixth annual Teddy Bear Toss night on Saturday, December 14 and set a new team record, collecting 10,091 teddy bears and stuffed animals.

Make It Rain
Chris Bigras scored just 1:22 into the game on Saturday to bring over 10,000 teddy bears raining down from the stands at PPL Center. Thank you to all the fans who helped us set a new record of 10,091 stuffed animals that we were able to donate to Valley Youth House.
