– IBERIABANK, a 128-year-old subsidiary of IBERIABANK Corporation, has partnered with the Germain Arena and the Florida Everblades for a sixth year as the title sponsor of the annual Teddy Bear Toss on Sat., Dec. 12, 2015. The puck will drop at 7:00 p.m. as the Florida Everblades take on the Reading Royals. Fans are asked to bring a new, unwrapped stuffed toy or teddy bear to the game to toss onto the ice following the Everblades’ first goal. All stuffed toys will be delivered to the Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and other local charities.
“We collected over 7,000 toys last year at this heart-warming event through the generosity of the Everblades fans,” said David Gordley, market president for IBERIABANK. “It was priceless to accompany the players as we delivered these teddy bears to patients at the Golisano Children’s Hospital. We are looking forward to another successful event and hope to top the collection of previous years.”
Tickets may be purchased by visiting the Box Office at Germain Arena, calling 239-948-7825 or online at www.ticketmaster.com. Germain Arena is located at 11000 Everblades Parkway in Estero, FL.
