Cyclones Partner With Cincinnati Police Department for Teddy Bear Toss
CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Cincinnati Cyclones, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Florida Panthers and Nashville Predators, announced that they will hold their annual Teddy Bear Toss on Saturday, January 5 at U.S. Bank Arena. This year’s collection of bears will once again benefit the Cincinnati Police Department.
This year’s event will coincide with Throwback Night, which will feature $8 tickets, $1 John Morrell Hot Dogs, Donatos Pizza, Soda and Beer. When the Cyclones score their first goal, fans will be encouraged to throw a new or gently loved teddy bear onto the ice, which will then be collected and donated to the Cincinnati Police Department.
“This Teddy Bear Toss is another example of the Cyclones’ impressive community involvement,” said Police Chief James E. Craig. “The soft toys provided by fans will help officers engage and comfort children who have been victims of crimes, accidents or fires, and this small gift at a time of stress is a gesture of caring and love when it is most needed. The Police Department appreciates partners like the Cincinnati Cyclones who assist us in enhancing the delivery of police services to the community.”
“We are very excited to once again partner with such a dedicated, committed police department here in Cincinnati,” said Cyclones General Manager Kristin Ropp. “They provide such an outstanding level of service to our local community, and I’m very pleased we are able to team up with them for one of our signature promotions.”

Plus, the game will also feature the annual Teddy Bear Toss; fans will be encouraged to bring a new or gently loved stuffed animal to throw onto the ice after the Cyclones first goal.
