King University News :: King Alumni & Friends Gathering Set for Knoxville Ice Bears Military Appreciation Night

King's alumni friends are invited to participate in the Knoxville Ice Bears Military Appreciation Night and Annual Teddy Bear Toss on Friday, Nov. 18.

All King alumni and friends are invited to the Knoxville Ice Bears game against the Augusta Riverhawks at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium-Coliseum on Friday, Nov. 18. The Ice Bears are celebrating Military Appreciation Night and the Annual Teddy Bear Toss. Bring new or gently used stuffed animals to throw on the ice after the Ice Bears first goal. The bears stay cleaner if they are wrapped in a plastic bag, however, this is not required. The teddy bears will be collected and distributed to local children's charities throughout the Christmas season including Toys for Tots events, Children's Hospital visits, and donations to local law enforcement on domestic disturbance calls.

A meal will be provided to alumni and friends at 6:30 p.m. prior to the game, which begins at 7:30 p.m. The cost of admittance per person to the game is $5.

Alumni and friends who plan to attend are requested to RSVP to Patty Houston at 423.652.4864 or
