Monday, December 30 the Green Bay Gamblers and corporate partner Fox Communities Credit Union hosted the 11th Annual Mitten Toss at the Resch Center. Gamblers forward Nicholas Zabaneh scored at the 8:01 mark of the opening period, which was followed by the crowd tossing mittens on the ice. Overall, 911 mittens were collected. Mittens are donated to Title 1 schools in Northeast Wisconsin.
Since 2009, the annual Mitten Toss has collected nearly 15,000 pairs of mittens.
Fox Communities Credit Union has been the “Presenting” sponsor of the mitten toss each of the 11-years. The Gamblers also want to thank Saranac Glove for their donation of mittens.
The Gamblers and Fox Communities Credit Union team up again on Saturday, February 15 for the Wiener Dog Race and Saturday, April 18 for We Got You Girl, promotion dedicated to school-aged girls and ensuring their success in the classroom and in life.
