Calvary Day School's Teddy Bear Toss took place between the girls varsity and boys varsity basketball games Friday night. The event benefits the Children's Hospital. To encourage giving, the school offered a discount to the game for those who brought a new teddy bear.
"They are something that really distracts them from their illness. So it makes it a better day for them. What we are trying to do is make it as normal as possible given the circumstances in which they are in the hospital for," said Bill Lee, Children's Hospital vice president.
Calvary Day School was able to collect 260 teddy bears from the event.
