Please accept my heartfelt appreciation to everyone who helped make our first ever Cedar County Teddy Bear Toss such a great success.

Thanks to El Dorado and Stockton school administrators, athletic directors and coaches for their support in this endeavor.

Thanks to everyone from gate workers, score keepers and announcers for going above and beyond their normal duties.

Thanks so much to all who helped spread the word, from local media, to Facebook-sharing people, to those who made posters advertising the event.

Special thanks to El Do and Stockton cheerleaders and sponsors for all of their hard work.  We couldn’t have done this without you!

Thanks to the Cedar County Sheriff’s Office,  Missouri Highway Patrol and Family Services for being so receptive to the idea and for sending representatives to the game.  We appreciate all you do.

Finally and most importantly,  thank you to everyone who came and brought a stuffed animal to donate to such a worthy cause.  You each did your part to reinforce what amazing communities we have here in Cedar County. You are terrific.
