Holiday spirit was in the air as the Junior Condors ice hockey team came together to receive donations for a goal they are eager to reach.

"We are out here trying to raise money for the junior condors hockey association so they can send them to the tournaments and playoffs," said Ryan Jocker's a Junior Condor.

These young hockey players were raising that money in a way to keep locals warm, selling hot chocolate with marshmallows for only a dollar. 

Since December 11, team members of the Junior Condors gathered together selling hot chocolate to Bakersfield families along Haggin Oaks Blvd. and Ming Avenue.

"We are really doing it to raise as much money as we can get," said Junior Condor Zach Jocker's.

Those who stopped by were able to catch a ride in the famous Grinch mobile, that was driven by the Junior Condors head coach.

No matter how much money was raised, the Junior Condors came together for a night of fun as a team.

Wednesday December 13 was the last night the team was selling hot chocolate. If you would like to make a donation to the team, you can visit the Kern County Hockey Club website Junior Condors
