Melbourne Ice prepare to take on Sydney Bears in Canada day clash
Monday, June 25, 2018 - Submitted by Canada Cup 2018 Ice v Bears.
We are half-way through the 2018 season and it is that time of the year when we come together as a big family to celebrate the origins of this beautiful sport we all love!
Coming Saturday, June 30th at 5.00pm AEST, the O'Brien Group Arena will be buzzing with all the fanfare and roar as your Melbourne Ice, dressed in special jerseys, prepares to take on Sydney Bears for another edition of the Canada Cup in commemoration of our annual Canada Day festivities.
The game is almost sold out, So Hurry!! Book your tickets today!!!
Like the past seasons, after the first goal of the game is scored, everyone is invited to throw their teddy bears on to the ice. All the teddy bears will go to our charity partner of the day - Alannah & Madeline Foundation.
The Foundation's key objectives are to care for children who have experienced or witnessed serious violence and bullying online and offline. They remain strong advocates of children safety and well being through their evidence-based programs.
To know more about the Foundation work and how you can get involved, please visit their website HERE.
No time to buy teddy bear?
If bringing your own teddy bear is going to be a hassle, Do Not Stress!!
Alannah & Madeline Foundation will be selling them at the desk next to the rink for only $10 each. Walk-in early for the game and be ready with your teddy!
All money raised goes to the children's cause.
