St. Mary's Basketball is in the full spirit of giving this holiday season, hosting its first Teddy Bear Toss at its games this week against UA Fort Smith.
Fans are encouraged to bring in new or gently used teddy bears or other stuffed animals to either the Men's or Women's Basketball game this Thursday against UAFS. The Lady Rattlers tip off at 5:30 p.m. inside Bill Greehey Arena and the Men tip off at 7:30 p.m.
During halftime of each game, fans will throw their teddy bears or other stuffed animals on the court of Bill Greehey Arena. The donations will then be collected and delivered to the pediatrics ward at University Hospital by players of the Women's and Men's teams on Fri., Dec. 20 in hopes to give each child a teddy bear or stuffed animal for Christmas.
Each fan who brings in a donation will receive free admission to the game. If you cannot attend either game but would like to make a donation, please contact Robin Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
