For the Reporter

As of 4 p.m. today approximately 500 tickets remain for the Thunderbirds' annual Fred Meyer Teddy Bear Toss Game on Saturday.

The T-Birds host the Everett Silvertips at 7:05 p.m. at the ShoWare Center.

A sellout crowd of more than 6,000 Teddy Bear-tossing fans are expected to be on hand for the game. The Warm 106.9 FM Teddy Bear Patrol will collect the bears and other stuffed animals and distributes them to local police and fire departments who give them to children in times of emergency and crisis.

On Sunday, the T-Birds (29-14-2-3) host the No. 1 ranked team in the CHL, the Kelowna Rockets. Face-off is 5:05 p.m. The Rockets (38 -6-0-2) make their second and final appearance at the ShoWare Center.

Tickets also can be purchased at the ShoWare Center Box Office.
