United Way


SAT. NOV. 27th. 

United Way of Kern County and The Bakersfield Condors keep the tradition alive! The 23rd Annual Teddy Bear Toss will be held on Saturday, November 27, 2021. This year, we will be back on the ice for the community's favorite game of the year. Bring your bears to the 23rd Annual Teddy Bear Toss to support local organizations in Kern County who utilize them in their programs and services for children.

Grab Discounted Tickets for Bakersfield's favorite game of the year and make a difference in your community!

All ticket sales through UWKC will go directly towards impacting the individuals, children, and families in Kern County.

This is NOT your ticket. After selecting your seats and confirming your purchase, we will transfer your tickets from AXS to your email within 48 hours.

Can't make it to the game but still want to support? There are 3 ways you can give a bear into a child in need in Kern County.
