JONESBORO, Ark. (12/17/12) – The Arkansas State University Athletics Department is taking an active role in “Project Teddy Bear” to help the survivors of the recent Connecticut Elementary School tragedy and will be donating those Teddy Bears collected at this Wednesday’s (Dec. 19) ASU men’s basketball game.

Fans attending this Wednesday’s game against Murray State at the ASU Convocation Center in Jonesboro, Ark., are encouraged to bring a new or slightly used Teddy Bear to the contest, which starts at 7:35 p.m. (CT).  The Teddy Bears and stuffed animals will be tossed on the court at halftime and those collected will go directly to those Sandy Hook Elementary School students who survived the recent tragic event.    

“This (Teddy Bear Toss) is an annual event for us which helps those children in need,” said ASU Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing and Promotions Gleen Hart.  “In light of the recent tragedy in Connecticut, we’re donating all of the Teddy Bears to the survivors to help ease their suffering and show we deeply care.”

As a result of their donation, fans will receive a group discount rate of $5 per individual and one Teddy Bear/stuffed animal per person will be accepted.  Those who donate a Teddy Bear will have an opportunity to win a prize courtesy of ASU.

For more information about this Wednesday's third annual Teddy Bear Toss event, please contact ASU Athletics Marketing at (870) 972-3880.
