A local child in need could get to have a teddy bear to hug this Christmas thanks to your generosity.

The University of Montana Lady Griz basketball team with be hosting MSU-Billings this Friday night, December 20, at 7:00 p.m., in the Adams Center on the UM campus. It's Teddy Bear Toss Night. Bring a teddy bear with you and receive a free general admission ticket. Even if you already have tickets, please bring your teddy bears along to help add to the collection. At halftime of Friday's game, we will toss our teddy bears onto the court. They will be gathered up and distributed to local charities.

It's also ugly holiday-themed sweater night. If you have one, wear if you dare. You just might win a prize. Tickets to the game are available at the door.
