This year marks the 10th Anniversary of The New York Sash Teddy Bear Toss and the Utica College hockey game is already sold out! If you have tickets already, there are some great incentives for you to bring even more stuffed animals than you intended. If you don't have tickets, you can still get involved and see the game!

For those of you who have not experienced this incredible event it really is unlike anything you've ever seen before.

Here Is The Footage From Last Year's Game

Scot Hayes (New York Sash), Gary Heenan (Utica College Hockey), and everyone who helps put this thing together do an incredible job and all the stuffed animals and teddy bears collected stay local. This year for every stuffed animal you bring to the game you will receive a raffle ticket. The more bears you bring, the more chances you have to win. Those raffle tickets could win you an incredible prize pack including:

  • A New York Sash Gift Certificate for a Home Improvement Project
  • $250 in Landscaping Services from Stone Age Landscaping
  • Official Teddy Bear Toss Merchandise (Hats, Shirts, etc.)
  • $100 in Gift Certificates to Area Restaurants
  • Much More!

If you don't have tickets to the Teddy Bear Toss we still have a way you can donate your new stuffed animals and see the game! Tony's AUDelicious will be streaming the game LIVE right next door and for every bear you bring in to donate, you get one free drink! So don't miss this Central New York tradition and please bring plenty of bears! There are so many kids this time of year who need a good Christmas. Help make that magic for them. Go Pioneers!
