Retro T-Shirt Campaign Supports Clarky’s Kids

KITCHENER, ON – Since 1995, Rangers fans have been flooding the ice with bears during the annual Teddy Bear Toss game immediately following the Ranger’s first goal. Unfortunately, this year made that a near impossible feat.

What was possible though, in collaboration with the Kitchener Rangers, was to commemorate the team jersey worn during the first ever Teddy Bear Toss game in 1995. We put on our thinking caps as to how we could replace the community support generated from the Teddy Bear Toss. We came up with an idea and created a retro t-shirt with that era’s logo. The shirts were sold in the month of December and raised $3,050.00 to benefit Clarky’s Kids.

Make-A-Wish Benefits from Rangers Jersey Auction

December 16, 2020 – KITCHENER, ON

Traditionally, every September, the Kitchener Rangers host a “Fan Appreciation BBQ” to coincide with the start of the exhibition season at The Aud. Each year, the proceeds generated from the event would go to support Children’s Wish/Make-A-Wish. However, with the arrival of the pandemic and in person gatherings being limited, we were unable to host the event 2020.

Alternatively, the Rangers and Rangers Reach collaborated on hosting an online event to auction our alternate/third game jerseys online allowing us to continue to support Make-A-Wish Southwestern Ontario.
