The annual New York Sash Teddy Bear Toss game is coming up in December and if you're planning on heading to the game you'll need to get your tickets soon, because it ALWAYS sells out.

Not only has the Teddy Bear Toss game sold out every year since 2011, but the reason for the event is heartwarming also.

When the Utica College Pioneers score their first goal of the game, everyone in attendance 'tosses' a new teddy bear or stuffed animal onto the ice to be collected and given to local children in need during the Holidays.

This year's Teddy Bear Toss game is on December 9, at the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. The puck drops at 7 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now, and some great seats are still available right now, but get yours soon because they go fast!

You can get tickets through Empire State Tickets, and more information on the New York Sash Teddy Bear Toss Facebook page.
