    HERSHEY, Pennsylvania (WGAL) — The teddy bear toss at the Hershey Bears game set a new world record.

When the Bears scored their first goal on Saturday night, fans tossed all the stuffed animals they brought onto the ice.

According to team officials, 52,341 stuffed animals were collected and donated to various organizations.

There was also a big cash donation.

Bears fan Jeff Sweigart said if the record was broken, he’d donate $50,000.

That money will go to Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital.
