BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Teddy Bear Toss is one of the biggest nights of the year for the Bakersfield Condors, and the team unveiled this year's special jerseys on Tuesday.
The Teddy Bear Toss charity night will be Saturday, Nov. 25 at Rabobank Arena. This year, the Condors will be wearing special firefighter-themed jerseys.
Game issued jerseys will be auctioned off at the 7 p.m. game and five will be given away. Proceeds from the team's jersey auction will benefit the Kern County Burn Survivor Trust, Bakersfield Burn Foundation and Kern Heavy Rescue.
A ticket to the Teddy Bear Toss will get you not only into that event, but into two. Those with Teddy Bear Toss tickets will be able to attend the Guns and Hoses game at 2 p.m. at Rabobank Arena. Local law enforcement and local fire and rescue personnel will play against each other in the game to raise money for charity.
Jersey auctions have raised more than one million dollars for charity over the years, and the Teddy Bear Toss has collected more than 110,000 bears.
