A charity initiative in favour of the paediatric department of the Cona Hospital

A soft toy in flight, like a ball headed towards the basket or like a pneumatic cylinder in action, to bring a smile to the families in the stands and especially to the children of the Paediatric Department of the Cona Hospital (Ferrara).

As Platinum Sponsor and Game Sponsor for the next match scheduled in Cento, we have decided to collaborate with Benedetto XIV for the first Teddy Bear Toss in the history of Cento Basketball Club.
This Teddy Bear Toss will therefore take place during the match against Orzinuovi on Sunday 28 January at 8.00 pm at the Baltur Arena in Cento.

We embraced the proposal made by Benedict XIV with real enthusiasm, because it reflects the values of our company” says Alberto Fortini, partner and sales manager of ARTEC Pneumatic. “We hope to see many fans at the stadium participating in this initiative, and to be a source of inspiration for other similar charitable initiatives carried out by other companies”.

Teddy Bear Toss is one of the most characteristic and recognizable sporting traditions, and for fans to participate is extremely simple: all fans are invited to come to the Baltur Arena equipped with a soft toy or puppet (without potentially harmful hard plastic parts that may be dangerous for players, referees, technicians and other spectators) and to throw it onto the pitch after the first point of Sella Cento (therefore, any free throws or opponents’ points do not count). If the throw of the teddy bear is short, other spectators will pick up the toy that missed the parquet and throw it back onto the pitch.
The resulting show is unique: a shower of soft toys will cover the parquet! Then, those puppets will be collected and donated to the boys and girls hospitalized in the paediatric department of the Cona Hospital.

To support a boy or girl in difficulty you don’t need a cylinder, but a puppet can do it!
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
