Rockford, Ill.- This Saturday is the Rockford IceHogs annual Teddy Bear Toss and all fans who bring a new stuffed animal to the game can enter to win a pair of round trip airline tickets courtesy of the Chicago-Rockford International Airport (RFD), Frontier Airlines and Maverick Media.

The IceHogs take on the Abbotsford Heat at 7:05 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center, and after the IceHogs score their first goal of the game, fans can toss their stuffed animals onto the ice. The stuffed animals will be collected and donated to several local charities and hospitals to brighten the holidays for local underprivileged kids.

Before they reach their final destination, all the stuffed animals collected at the IceHogs game will be brought to the Chicago-Rockford International Airport where they’ll be on display during the airport’s two weeks of giving for Toys For Tots.

Additionally, fans who bring a stuffed animal to the game on Saturday can enter to win a pair of round trip airline tickets on Frontier Airlines to Denver, Col. Frontier’s service to Denver from RFD begins on Friday, Dec. 16.  RFD offers free parking, curbside baggage, short security lines and free Wi-Fi Internet.  For more information, check out flyRFD.com.
